Dry Brush Watercolor Technique
Laying some foundation washes
I wanted some underlying tones to dry brush the subsequent strokes over.
I made a light wash of Hooker’s Green Dark grayed with a touch of Alizarin Crimson and I painted the backround tree line around what is now determined to be a lake using the #8 round red sable .
Using a wash of Dioxazine purple I painted the shadow areas of the tree, keeping the edges rough with broken washes.
While this was still wet I added some blue accents with a mix of Cobalt blue.
