Dusk 3 and 4 - Two Works in Progress

I pulled out a couple of watercolour backgrounds that I started earlier this year (see post on 08 March 2017) and thought that I would sketch in the land areas and the lakes.

For the first one, I wanted it to seem as though overlooking a series of islands on a large lake.

On the second one I needed to turn the piece upside down.

From there I indicated the horizon line and added in the trees on the distant shoreline.

I added in another layer for trees into the middle area of the lake.

From there I added a closer line of trees against the water.

Next I added in a couple of large pine trees into the foreground.

I will post each of these paintings at a later date as more work on them is completed.
