Day 21: 30 Paintings in 30 Days!

"The Magic of a Lake"   $99
Image:  11" x 14"      Watercolor
Another Lake Scene from my memory.  These are such quick paintings, but they are great exercises on timing.  Wetting both sides of the paper allows for more time to paint the sky ad water with wet washes.  Then, I change to a smaller 1/2 inch flat brush when I paint the tree masses.  Changing colors often is the trick here.  Adding salt at the base of the trees makes great bushes.  These quarter sheet paintings only take about 15 minutes to do!
