First Day of the Shades of Summer Art Show and Sale

I decided to work in watercolour today and chose this painting that I started earlier this year (see post on 22 March 2017).

It was originally to be a snow scene but I changed my mind and thought I would make it a late autumn scene with a full moon.

Since I didn't like the way the clouds looked I blended them across the sky being careful to leave a light area where I painted in the moon with new gamboge.

Using a mix of French ultramarine blue and raw sienna I put in the distant hill behind the line of trees.

I will post this painting at a later date once more work on the painting has been completed.
