Painting Blog – New Watercolor Landscape

Watercolor Landscape Painting

Started a new watercolor painting last night after I finished the painting the pebbles.  This is a new watercolor landscape painting on Strathmore 400 series which is a 140 lb Watercolor Paper available at many artist material supply such as Blick Art materials or Cheap Joes Art Stuff.

I have decided to do this painting with mostly splattering watercolor technique.  I started off mixing some light green watercolor paint for the large tree on the top row started on the left side.  With tape masking the rest of the areas I do not want any paint, I begin with painting the top reight area with my watercolor mixture.  Layers are left dry before another darker or different color layer is being put on top.  A variety of color is used and mostly are from Winsor and Newton Artist Watercolor tubes.  Colors used were Windsor Green, Hooker’s Green, Prussian Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Winsor Blue, Winsor Lemon, Winsor Green, Yellow Ochre and Alizarin Crimson.
