After a disappointing start using Derwent 300gsm watercolor paper whereas the paper delaminated after wetting for 2 minutes for stretching purposes. Will remember to use Arches 300gsm in future. I used Windsor Blue (red) and Burnt Sienna (Windsor Newton sticks) I was surprised at how many shades I could get from blending these two colors together. Overall I am pleased with the result and I learnt something again. I was hoping that it would be a little more vibrant, the trees on the LHS …hmmm? you know what I’m saying…could have been done better..(next time…lol)
I did a rough value study beforehand to get the feel for the composition.
