Multiple layers of wash with permanent rose and payne’s grey on strathmore 140 lb watercolour paper created the depth. Sap green on the landscape was too contrasty so I resorted to a final wash with W/N white.
It turned into an exercise in colour application followed immediately by lifting off. I’ll never underestimate the skill of the impressionists.
The softness is there but I’m not thrilled. Painting hard edges is easier. It’s going to take a while for this to grow on me.
I pretend to resist structure, but locking this puppy into a frame could only help.
