Country Morning

This is the start of the first 30 Day Challenge for 2011.

I decided to work with a limited palette of three colours burnt sienna, raw sienna and French ultramarine blue. The paper was wet and washes of pure raw sienna and burnt sienna was applied to the sky.

The fence rails were painted in once the paper had dried using various mixtures of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.

"Growies" were added to the bottom of the painting using mixtures of the three colours.

Burnt sienna was used to add the fence wire to complete the painting.

This original 5" x 7" framed watercolour was selected as an addition to the collection of Ms. C. Farris of Peterborough, Ontario.

I will continue to post the painting I finish each day during the course of the month. I hope you will return often to see the postings.
