|'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.
