Aurora 1

The paper was wet with water and using Antwerp blue I put down vertical strokes across the paper leaving a few areas without paint.

While the paper and paint were still wet I applied alizarin crimson in the centre of the picture overlapping some of the Antwerp blue and the white paper allowing the paint to blend on its own.

With the paper still wet raw sienna was applied to the left side leaving some areas of the Antwerp blue and alizarin crimson untouched.

The painting was then left to dry completely before the trees were painted in using French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and raw sienna.

This little gem is an original 2-1/2" x 3-1/4” framed watercolour available for $65.00.
