OSWOA - Swamp 1

This is a painting using three colours; cobalt blue, raw sienna and burnt sienna.

A graded wash of cobalt blue was painted into the background first and as the paper was drying the pine trees in the background were added using a mixture of cobalt blue and raw sienna.

Mixtures of burnt sienna and raw sienna were used for the foreground grasses. Then as the paper was almost completely dry the dead cedars were painted in using a mixture of cobalt blue and burnt sienna.
