December Days

4.25x5.5 watercolor on Fluid 140 lb cold press paper done yesterday of an imaginary winter landscape complete with snow and overcast skies.  I wanted to use color combinations never tried so for the sky burnt umber + phthalo blue were mixed and same colors throughout except for the buildings which was Indian red. That red stays on my palette but is not popular as it is opaque.  I mixed a grey of what colors were in the mixing part of the palette for the frozen water.  Distant hills were softened with a damp brush.  I am trying to paint better landscapes along with portraits, two subjects that are not easy.
