OSWOA - Autumn Forest 2

Today I was at painting with the Buckhorn Tuesday Painting Group at St. Matthews Church in Buckhorn.

I was having a hard time deciding what I would like to paint and finally chose to work on this one (see posts on 24 August 2012 and 18 December 2012).

I used a sponge a various mixtures of yellow, orange and red to put in brighter background colours.

While the background was drying I painted the boathouse and the foreground rocks.

Using various mixtures of light and dark greens I put in the tall ancient pine trees that stood out sharply against the autumn colours behind them.

As the pine trees were drying I added some reflected colour into the foreground water.  

Then I painted in the tree trunks and a few dead trees into the background.
