ACEO - Peach Sky 8

I started this painting last year (see post in 07 December 2016) when a friend of mine gave me a set of opaque watercolour paints to try.

First I lightly drew in the tree trunks being careful to leave space for some of the yellow sky colour to show through the trees at the bottom of the painting.

Using a variety of greens made from Antwerp blue, raw sienna, new gamboge, aureolin and French ultramarine blue I put in the tree trunks, branches and needles.

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