OSWOA - Morning Lake 2

I know that the weatherman called for rain today, but what came down but although it is still a four letter word he didn't call for something that is white, cold, wet and fluffy and covered the grass to a depth of 2" (5cm). Fortunately by late afternoon it all melted away.

Since I wasn't planning on going out today I decided that I would pull a number of paintings out and work on them today and see how many I could either complete or get a fair amount of work on them completed.

I started with this painting that I have been working on for a while (see posts on 08 December 2013, 27 January and 22 February 2014, 22 January 2015 and 21 February 2016) and needed only a small amount of work to finish.

Using a green of Antwerp blue and new gamboge I put on the under paint for the pine needles and leaves on the bushes.

Next I put in the tree trunks and branches on the bushes with French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.

Lastly I put the darker needles and leaves on the trees and bushes with French ultramarine blue and raw sienna.
