Expressive Trees in. Watercolour

This workshop with Caroline started with the painting of white masking fluid over white areas and reflections.After letting it dry, she mixed pools of turquoise,purple, blue and orange. Painting the purple loosely she covered it with plastic wrap and left to dry. She removed this leaving a lovely texture. 

She added orange with deep brown for the trunk of the tree scratching into it. She added splatter and painting in the reflections scratching this side ways. She went on to paint the bushes and trees with the strong colours coming forward blending them into the water. She bent the reflections as they enter the water.

Once it dried she removed the masking fluid and added small twigs and detail with a small brush.
