Camouflage 8×11 watercolour

This one took a while to complete. The title says it all. I did add a little more contrast to make some of the branches and the owl come forward in the painting. The blue green moss is a mixture of cobalt blue, hansa yellow light, and lemon yellow. Interestingly, the dark greens were mixed with the same pigments in different amounts.

Once again I have to thank Pam Butler for the great reference photo she let me use. It really makes a difference to begin with a terrific photo.
