I happened upon a technique of growing watercolor ‘trees’ by allowing earth-tone pigments drip into a pre-wetted section of paper. My first efforts (Landscape, Fiery Landscape, Rocky Landscape, Trees Around the World, Trees for Flat-Earthers) were fantasies. Yesterday’s post was not about creating trees, but rather about composition and layering.
I took the same tack today. Individual trees were even less of a concern. I wanted to create the dark space between the trees as seen by a couple of fishermen in a small boat.
I’m getting better at painting reflective water. Now if I could only get it to mirror objects properly. Next time, perhaps.
