ACEO - Waterfall 2

Today I thought I would finish this painting that I had started last year (see posts on 06 February and 08 August 2017).

Using a small sponge to put in the autumn leaves on the closer trees I used mixtures of cadmium red, cadmium yellow, aureolin and new gamboge.

I started with the larger trees in the middle area and darkened the colours as I worked my way forward to the largest tree in the foreground.

Using a brush I added a few leaves scattered throughout the grasses.

If you would like more information about ACEO please go to my post on 11 March 2010.

The ACEO shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Winsor & Newton paint on 300lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $20.00 and sold unframed.
