Watercolour trees

Watercolour trees - student project

This class has been so educational! I just love how you can get amazing results from very simple techniques. 

I used regular cartridge paper for the exercises so it got pretty ugly once wet :) But I’m definitely trying this on watercolour paper very soon! 

Here is the colour palette for foliage and bark. This one I’ll keep in my watercolour sketchbook as a reference for later.

Thanks Jen, I’m friends with watercolours again thanks to you! :)

Update: Couldn’t wait to try this technique on watercolour paper for better quality. Here are two compositions.
