Rain Clouds - A Work in Progress

Today I was painting with the Buckhorn Tuesday Painting Group and thought I would like to do more work on the trees I put into this painting last month (see posts on 14 January 2011 and 05 January 2020).

I started by washing a in a base colour onto the trunks and main branches of each of the trees using mixtures of Antwerp Blue, French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.

Using darker mixtures of the same colours gradually added the bark texture to the tree trunks and main branches, as well as adding smaller branches and twigs.

I will post this piece at a later date one all the branches on the trees have been completed.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork. I hope you will return often.
