with my painting.
Drawing was transferred to Saunders fine 300gms watercolor paper stretched before use.
Size: 26cms by 37cms.
I applied a Raw Sienna wash to the sky area, painting around the rock.
While wet, I painted streaks of an Ultramarine/Alizarin Crimson mix across the lower sky area.
Then, I started streaks at the top using Cobalt Blue/Light Red.
The paper had started to dry so I had to stop. :-)
the paper had thoroughly dried, I re-wet the sky area with clear water
and added some more streaks of Cobalt Blue/Light Red.
The distant hills were painted with a mix of Cobalt Blue/Burnt Umber, a blue grey while the sky area was still wet, which resulted in a soft edge at the top.
After the paper had dried, sand dunes were painted with a mix of Cobalt Blue and Cadmium Yellow. Burnt umber was dropped into the base of dunes (while wet). The sand area was painted with Raw Sienna.
