“A Quiet Brooding” 8×10 Watercolor Tree Art:
Watercolor tree art: I’ve experimented with watercolors a few times and love the medium, but I have a hard time (being a realistic artist) with the unpredictability of watercolors. However, I broke through that barrier with “A Quiet Brooding” using a two medium approach, including both watercolors and pen & ink! The nature of watercolors is freedom and vibrancy, and I’ve tempered that freedom with the strict detail of pen work to get a free flowing but more realistic watercolor tree painting.
How This Landscape Watercolor Painting Was Made:
The original sunset painting is mixed media, using pen art to establish the base lines of the tree, then watercolors, allowing that natural freedom and vibrancy to take the original drawing to a new level.

Being a mixed media artwork, this painting had a couple of steps before any watercolors hit the paper! The masking fluid was used to mask out the tree and ground so I could pour the background, then masking was used on the highlights of the tree.
