OSWOA - Moonlit Forest 1

It is very hot 93F (33.9C) and humid 107F (41.7C) for the last day of the Kawartha Arts Festival. But we are fortunate that there is a little bit of a breeze blowing that is keeping it bearable inside the building.

Today I worked on this painting that I had started last year (see post on 08 May 14).

It didn't need a lot of work and I wanted to complete it while at the show.

I started with the main birch tree and added the markings onto the trunk with various mixtures of burnt sienna and French ultramarine blue.

I added some grasses into the bottom of the painted with raw sienna leaving some of the background colour showing.

Next I added a little French ultramarine blue to the raw sienna and painted in more of the grasses.
