two studies, exploring papers and mediums
I decided to try watercolor on the Twinrocker paper, even though it is not watercolor paper. I was delighted that it only buckled little, just as much as wallis does; but it took the watercolor in a very interesting way. I had missed the way watercolor adds a richness and takes away the dustiness that pastel can have.
These were both done in very low light, the sun was setting and dropping below the trees. Green is the name of the game already. That meant I needed to use a warm underpainting to temper the greeness.
Now it's morning, time to go off to the lake again.
