9x6.5 watercolor and white wax crayon on hot press paper, an imaginary scene inspired by today's fog, freezing drizzle, and forecast of the same the next 3 days. After yesterday's warm temps and sunshine, it is back to Old Man Winter. For today's work, I used the white crayon for vertical tree lines on dry paper, then mixed neutral darks, popping in Coastal Fog and white gouache to move the paint around. Colors used: Alizarin crimson, UB, thalo blue (red shade), thalo green, sap green, quin burnt orange, indigo. Barely letting each application dry, I charged back into areas with other brushloads of pigment. Some splatters when almost dry of the opaques was done.
