Like before when doing the grayscale study, you can use a fan brush for the palm fronds. This time, start with Cobalt Blue Hue, and paint the one in the middle. Layer Olive Green on top, and remember to curve your brush in different ways to get the right effect. For the one to the left, use Permanent Mauve with Cobalt Blue, Cobalt Green, and Viridian on top. For the one on the right, use Olive Green, with Viridian on top.

As a side note, these are all suggested colors, so don’t feel like you have to use them! Follow your own artistic instincts to get the historical watercolor painting you want.
