Long Shadows

Today I am painting with the Buckhorn Tuesday Painting Group and I thought I would like to finish this painting that I had started quite a while ago (see posts on 20 August 2010 and 14 January 2016).

Using a grey made with French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I darkened down the pine tree trunks and branches.

Using various mixtures of French ultramarine blue, Antwerp blue, cobalt blue, raw sienna, new gamboge and aureolin I made the greens for the pine needles on the trees.

I put the grasses and growies showing through the snow at the base of the trees with cadmium yellow, burnt sienna, raw sienna and lemon yellow.

This original 6" x 6-3/4” watercolour painting when framed will be available for $125.00.
