Deep Forest is a wonderfully shaped canvas - perfect for long, tall trees. The canvas was underpainted with cadmium orange - you can see it peeking out between the tree trunks and the foreground patch of wildflowers. This painting was a demo piece I brought with me last Thursday to our watercolor group, Greenbrier Artists, at Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg. Rose Dobbins did a demo rooster in this style and I did a another landscape. My palette colors included: cobalt blue, ultramarine blue, cad yellow deep, Naples yellow, burnt sienna, quin red, cad red, brilliant purple (Liquitex) and sky blue, along with Hooker's Green Deep - also from Liquitex. This is the kind of loose style I really enjoy doing. Second and third photos show detail of foreground and tree tops. Your comments are always welcome.
