Mt Wilson Autumn Colors

This is a watercolor landscape painting I started just before my wife and I took a three-week trip to the Australian outback. I finished it on the weekend. It was an interesting challenge to paint all that green in with the bright autumn colours and I am very happy with the result.

I used a sponge to create a lot of the final foliage texture.I started the painting by splattering water where all the foliage was going to be and then moved on to splatter the warm and cool colors of the foliage.

I will  be doing a full demonstration of how I painted this watercolor landscape.
