"Dancing Light, Changing Seasons".
This is a quick watercolour sketch of trees and standing water. I wanted to capture the textures of the trees and middle-ground rocks, with some foreground flora.
I bought a new Opus 130 lbs watercolour paper sketch book, which is excellent. The paper reacts to washes, masking fluid and lifting colour with ease.
More About This Painting
This is a value sketch of the painting, which is quite telling in terms of how different hues in the watercolour are comparable, in “black and white”. I know this is backwards, because artists usually create a value sketch before organizing the painting.
