OSWOA - Wild Country

On this painting I was using flat brushes and pouring paint onto the paper and spreading around with the brushes to create trees.

A flat wash of French ultramarine blue was poured onto the paper and rolled around and left to dry.

The next colour to be poured the paper was new gamboge into the bottom of the painting. Followed by a mixture of raw sienna and Antwerp blue, which was rolled around on the paper and then with the flat brush tree shapes were made as well as a few grass shapes in the lower right hand corner.

Finally a mixture of French ultramarine blue and alizarin crimson was poured onto the paper and made into more tree shapes. As the paint was drying and using the slanted end of the handle of the flat brush "dead" trees were lifted out from the paint by scraping.
