As part of my watercolour and gouache course work my next project is to paint a spring woodland scene ....we have been asked to look at the landscape paintings of COROT for inspiration
or to paint a painting expressing a poem by SHAN-MAI which starts
The Green Spring
When Spring comes
I see the woods turning green...............
i've started making lots of green colour swatches with watercolour and gouache and have made a few plein air woodland sketches this week ...it is a difficult challenge for me .
with the project in mind i also decided to start exploring a few demonstrations of a wonderful book called "The Tao of Watercolor" by Jeanne Carbonetti , which was recommended to me a few years ago.
i'm posting my first attempt based on Jeanne's demonstration of "The Atmospheric Landscape"
i'd like to thank Jeanne Carbonetti for her kind permission to post my WIP
