Toward the Sunrise – Daily Watercolor Painting

Toward the Sunrise - Watercolor Landscape

More work done on the Toward the Sunrise watercolor painting.  I tried doing a gradated wash on the paper so that it acts like an underpainting before I spatter on the diluted but not mixed watercolor from the tube.  I found that it works better in certain areas and I need to be more aware  on the tones and values of the adjacent areas if I use this underpainting method.  The color nees to be the same or very similar and it will afffect the overall value of the areas to be painted.  Exploring all these possibilities will certainly give me more options as my style is developed and fine tuned.  Tonight I will try to finish this watercolor painting and will go on and explore some other different application of watercolor paint on paper.
