30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 14: Trees at Abandoned House



Today I am painting, but will not finish a painting.  I am working on this painting which I started last week with the contour drawing I posted.  It requires a lot of effort and detail and will not be completed in one day.  I assure you, I will continue to be painting most of the day!

This painting is 12" x 9" and is on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper from Canson with QoR watercolors from Golden.

I can see where this might be complicated. I admire your patience and dedication.

Yes - I am encountering some problems already - mainly in the values - the old house and the trees are all the same values, so I have decided to glaze a dark wash over the house after I have it painted.
Thank you so much for commenting!
