In the Shadow of Trees #Watercolor #Strathmore #ArtJournal


Day 1 in my 10-day watercolor a day journal.

I don’t plan to write in this journal, but I am writing about them in my blog, as you may have noticed.  So ‘art’ journal may be a misnomer, but I think I’m keeping to the spirit if not the exact meaning of the term.

This painting was mostly done with the wet-in-wet technique.  While I blocked the trees in with the initial washes, I did have to come back to build up the values.  I did a little lifting so I could warm up a few areas with some Hansa Yellow Medium.

Overall, I don’t think I spent much more than 1/2 hour, which is the goal for this journal.
