New Forest Trees With Shadows WIP stages
|New Forest trees with shadows - WIP|
In the first panel the scene is drawn up in brown acrylic paint straight on to the stretched watercolour paper. Sometimes I do put a ground base wash of a single colour over the whole image area but on this instance I did not.The second panel shows the base colours added of the scene, also known as the 'under-painting'. The colours tend to be darker versions of the final intended colours and with few details added at this stage. The final panel shows the finished painting, with the final colours and details applied on top of the under-painting. The painting itself is sized at 12" x 16" and all the paint is acrylic.
The final artwork can be seen here.
