The Japanese GardenPosted: June 28, 2014
The view that I picked at the Japanese Garden was a combination of man-made and natural elements. The pagoda on one end and waterfalls on the other were tied together by a lot of vegetation. I could have mixed up a big green wash and painted it straight across but that probably would have been quite monotonous so instead I chose to exaggerate the colours that I saw in the vegetation. Cool blueish-greens moved into bright yellow-greens which then changed into warm reddish-greens. In this mix there’s lots of Azo green, Quinacridone red and cerulean blue.
