View Full Version : Tree's dawn

Although I told my friend I would be busy painting between 3:30 & 6 today, she still called at 3:30 and only got off the phone when she noticed it was 4pm! Then, of course, I had the usual delays with the online PC, so I'm posting this at the 45-minute mark -- just don't have more time tonight.

I'll probably do a bit on it more later this week. Curry's 200# CP watercolor paper, 1" flat brush (old Utrecht Sablette) & #8 Escoda sable round, W/N perm. aliz. crimson, transparent yellow, a little cobalt blue, lots of Winsor blue... that's it, I think.

Nice start on that early morning light on the bristlecones Carol. Can't wait to see it finished.

You already have a really nice glow where the trees touch the sky, so it looks like you're well on your way to a successful painting. :)

Nice work Carol, free flowing and waterly. Captured the mood without the detail. Nice job.

I am impressed at the limited palette. It is so hard to mix just what you want but this is lovely.Connie

This is a beautiful start. :clap: I hope you do finish and post. I too have a hard time getting the time set aside to do the WDE's. Good thing the W stands for weekend and we have all weekend to get out two hours in!
