"Junipers At Needles Overlook" Watercolor on Strathmore Series 400 watercolor paper. 9"x9"
Painted using a Koi 18 pocket field sketch box and a Rosemary & Co. #6 SER344 watercolor brush. About 20 hours to complete.
This one almost didn't make the cut. I botched the sky color early on, making it far too aqua in color (way too much yellow) I fixed it by coming back in with a mix of Winsor & Newton white guache and the Koi watercolors (mixed in a separate, detached pool to avoid contamination of the Koi cakes). It took some work to get a decent gradient from dark to light and it is far from perfect, but it turned out ok.
Note: if you've never used Rosemary & Co. watercolor brushes, you owe it to yourself to try them out. They're phenomenal.
