“Bulrush” was another exercise in wet-in-wet watercolor:
“Winter River” was a wet-in-wet watercolor (all the trees with foliage and their reflections were done in wet-in-wet) that’s supposedly difficult to execute, but was actually pretty easy for me after multiple attempts with “Two Pines” (see Part I of this series):
“Morning”, a quick wet-in-wet watercolor that took only a few minutes to execute:
“Dusk”, yet another quick wet-in-wet watercolor:
Finally, “Dead Tree and Lake” added the drybrush technique. Unfortunately, my 300-lb paper wasn’t coarse-enough for this technique to work as well as I wanted it to. I also painted over the distant headland before the flat washes had dried, so the paint there is a bit uneven.
