OSWOA - Sunset 1

This is a painting I had started last year (see posts on 08 February 2013 and 15 March 2013) and wanted to finish.

I started by painting in the main pine tree on the left side of the painting and then gradually adding in the background tree trunks.

I added more pine trees of various sizes along the ridge of snow and using a pale was of the pine needle colour lightly indicated the tree shadows on the snow.

Finally I added the grasses and growies to the base of the trees and in some areas of the snow.

If you would like more information about OSWOA please go to my post on 12 March 2010.

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.
