Painting Number 5 - Evergreens in Winter
I have joined a gouache challenge at Wet Canvas and the first thing we had to do was paint all different kinds of trees in as many tones as possible.
So I did trees, evergreens and palms and learned a lot doing this.
I want to become more proficient in gouache for sketching on certain paper that watercolor soaks through.
I took the knowledge I gained in those exercises and tried it in watercolor with these evergreens in winter. I made the whole composition simple with only three colors; sap green for the trees, ultramarine blue for the sky and ochre for the grass.
