OSWOA - Evening Forest 3

This is a painting I had started last year (see post on 31 July 2012) and decided that I wanted to complete it today.

First I put in the distant evergreen trees into the background with French ultramarine blue and raw sienna.

Using various mixtures of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I painted in the various deciduous trees and the markings on the birch trees in the forest.

With burnt sienna and cobalt blue I painted the growies into the foreground.

Lastly I added the leaves using mixtures of cadmium red, cadmium yellow, alizarin crimson, burnt sienna and raw sienna.

The OSWOA shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Winsor & Newton paint on 140lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $40.00 and sold unframed.
