Watercolour based on another still from a countryfile report. I really wanted to experiment with some of Alan Owen's suggested colour mixes. (hope you don't mind Alan) I've used a pale wash of U. marine & Vandyke brown for the sky and water, a stronger mix of the same for the distant hills. The greens are a variation of Windsor blue (green shade) and B. sienna. The light areas are R. sienna (dark) Finally the darks are a mix of Vandyke brown and Payne grey....with a bit of U. marine chucked in for good measure. Alan, the V. brown and Paynes grey is a brilliant dark mix for tree branches etc. Won't be going back to B. umber & U. marine. All Old Holland watercolours on Arches 12"x9".
