This is the demo I did for Tuesday’s watercolour class. I didn’t get it all done in class so I finished it when I got home. I like it better than the one I did for this weeks video. I think that the darkest trees just above the bridge have some interesting shapes to them and their dark value works well with the dark values under the arches. I also like the sky. In terms of what I would change next time is the colour contrast between the distant mountains on the left side and the sky. They are both very cobalt blue-ish and I think the mountains should have a different colour. A more neutralized blue would work.
This painting uses a triadic colour scheme: cobalt blue, yellow ochre and cad red light. I added a fourth colour thalo blue just so we could start to appreciate some of the special qualities of thalo blue.
