ACEO - Sunset Island 3

This is a painting that I started last month while teaching a class in watercolour (see post on 31 May 2017).

Using various mixtures of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I started by putting in the distant shoreline.

With a darker mix I put in the rocks of the foreground island and then added the pine trees and growies.

Next I finished the painting by putting some reflections into the water below the far shore and the island.

The ACEO shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Winsor & Newton paint on either 140lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $20.00 and sold unframed.
