Autumn Maple

I pulled out a number of paintings that I had started a while ago (see posting on 16 January 2011) and decided that I would work on this one.

I painted in the main trunk of the tree first with mixtures of browns and greys and set it aside to dry.

Then I wet the area where I wanted to place the rest of the autumn leaves and using a sponge and various mixtures of new gamboge, aureolin, alizarin crimson, cadmium red and cadmium yellow added the colour.

This original 10" x 11" watercolour painting when framed will be available for $245.00.
