Putting greenPosted: October 2, 2014
Every sketch could end up becoming a bigger painting, eventually, if the composition and subject are interesting enough. If this sketch did become a larger work, there is one thing that I would change immediately. The two trees at the right are exactly the same size and same height (and unfortunately shaped a bit like two ladies in green ball gowns!). If I had been a bit more mindful of these shapes, I might have noticed it earlier. Sometimes it is only after I see the sketch on screen that the oversights become apparent. One of these ladies could certainly benefit from a bit of resizing.
Sketched in a Handbook Watercolour Travelogue Journal, 8″ x 8″. The greens on the green are a mix of Azo Green and Sap Green. The greens in the evergreens are a mix of Azo Green, Sap Green and Ultramarine.
