7x9 watercolor and pastel on Uart
Late afternoon, as the sun sets, the air has so much warmth in color. That means choosing color to lean warm even when it seems cool. More pink when it seems violet, more violet when it seems blue...pick the warmer version. As the light slipped through this small slice in the forest (a power line cut) it provided deep shadow and small areas kissed with light.
The underpainting (above) was glazed with orange after the underlying colors were placed..
