In the Shadow of Trees #Watercolor #Strathmore #ArtJournal


Day 1 in my 10-day watercolor a day journal.

I don’t plan to write in this journal, but I am writing about them in my blog, as you may have noticed.  So ‘art’ journal may be a misnomer, but I think I’m keeping to the spirit if not the exact meaning of the term.

This painting was mostly done with the wet-in-wet technique.  While I blocked the trees in with the initial washes, I did have to come back to build up the values.  I did a little lifting so I could warm up a few areas with some Hansa Yellow Medium.

Overall, I don’t think I spent much more than 1/2 hour, which is the goal for this journal.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
