WATERCOLOR PROCESS


DARN!  I thought for sure I had an in between picture of this painting.  A picture with just the first washes of color on the paper.  I don't do a very good tutorial post. :)  I'll get better!  So this is 140lbs. watercolor paper.  I am using alizarin crimson, gamboge, burnt umber and quinocridone rust for the tree.  I just absolutely LOVE the quinocridone colors.  They jump off the paper!  Almost done....
