|I started this with aureolin over all, then did the leaves in quin. gold with phthalo green, and green with quin. burnt orange for the darker leaves. The branches were painted with orange, quin. violet and indanthrone.|
|I used the same colors for the broken reflections . Then mixed aureolin, a quin. pink and cobalt blue to indicate water.|
|I used a darker grey [with indanthrone instead of cobalt] to add rain drops, and accent the focal area.|
|I used almost all the same colors, tending more to the warms - aureolin, quin. gold and burnt orange, phthalo green, quin. violet and indanthrone.|
|I warmed the focal area with a thin w/w application of gold, then some burnt orange was drawn in and softened.|
Both paintings are about 12 x 6 inches.
|As for Maggie, she is quite happy to be outside whatever the weather.|
