Mountain Pine Forest

'Mountain Pine Forest' - 5x5 - Watercolor - February 2016

Today I'm continuing to paint some 'mini' watercolors.    I love working in square.   The look of the painting is just very different.   This is a simple pine forest.   In this painting I painted the sky in first. Then i added some yellows and orange as a wash on the bottom.   Then came the pine trees.   Watercolor is not very forgiving.    It forces you to be patient.   While I like this painting, it would have been better if I'd left more of the white paper and yellow-orange under wash.
