Home to Roost

This little painting is 5" x 6" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.  I used quinacridone rose violet, yellow ochre, antwerp blue and sepia.  I did it all wet into wet and finished it with wet on dry.  Compositionally, I would consider this a realistic "shapes within shapes" design style - the trees sort of frame the shapes in the distance.
