Three cedars, from my windowPosted: December 29, 2016
I can see these three cedars from my kitchen window, and despite their sameness of shape, with a bit of snow on them they become more interesting to sketch. Sometimes in winter, I paint the dark parts of a sketch first. That helps to set up the values correctly. A mix I like for evergreens is Phthalo Blue and Quinacridone Gold, with some Indanthrene Blue added in for the deepest darks. Sketched in a Handbook Watercolour Journal, 8″ x 8″.
