5" x 6"
I have decided to join the Twenty Minute Challenge hosted by Katharine Cartwright. I feel the 20 minutes devoted to this challenge is a good way to warm up. Not only that, it will help me to learn to paint the essentials instead of focusing on details.
Using a photo imaging program, I decreased the reds and increased the greens. I think this more accurately reflects the watercolor.
In this small warm-up, my concentration was on the colors I saw in the hillside as I looked out my East window. I wanted to express the essence of what I was seeing. The yellows are muted but light and lively. I also omitted the houses as my focus was on nature and not man-made objects. Next time, I will put in some of the houses.
