Mailbox 2 - A Work in Progress

I decided to do a little more work on this painting that I had started quite some time ago (see posts on 20 February 2012 and 14 December 2015).

I wanted to put the trees onto the distant hills, but before I could do that I lifted some lighter areas out of the snow with water.

The furthest back trees were put in using mixes of Antwerp blue and raw sienna.

The closer trees on the next hill were mixtures of Antwerp blue, French ultramarine blue and raw sienna.

Next I lightened the snow covered area on the top of the mail box.

I will work on this painting again and post it at a later date.
