OSWOA - Forest Stream 1

Today I am painting with the St. John's Art Group in Lakefield.

I wanted to complete this painting that I have been working on (see posts on 13 February 2011, 13 March, 13 August and 25 August 2016).

With a mix of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I painted in the frozen stream running through the forest, darker in the front of the painting leaving some areas white for ice and snow.

Using various mixtures of alizarin crimson, new gamboge, raw sienna, burnt sienna, French ultramarine blue and cadmium yellow I put in the grasses and growies at the base of the trees and at the edge of the stream.

With French ultramarine blue and a touch of burnt sienna, I painted shows into the base of the growies.

Lastly I added a few more leaves into some of the trees with burnt sienna and alizarin crimson.
