Mountain Scene by Mary Warnick
The lesson for my watercolor class this week was painting evergreen trees. The class worked from a couple of mountain paintings of mine, photographs or their imagination and memory.
My demo, which is the painting displayed, was from memory with a bit of artistic license. The Pieces of 8 have spent many happy getaways at the second homes of Carol and Cindy in the North Carolina mountains.
I started with the sky, then washed in the mountains. While that dried I added the light green in the foreground. Next was watching paint dry, so I went around and critiqued the students beginnings.
Adding the trees, flowers and a little barn for fun completed the painting.
The class enjoyed the session, and hope you will enjoy this post.
