ACEO - Peach Sky 5

Last year I started a number of paintings using opaque watercolour paint (see post on 07 December 2016) and today I wanted to finish this piece.

I liked the sky and wanted to keep most of it untouched so I decided to use some of the green at the bottom of the painting as the background for a row of trees. 

Using a mix of burnt sienna and French ultramarine blue I painted in the tree trunks and main branches; this was followed by adding the foliage with a green of lemon yellow and Antwerp blue. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork.
