"A Splash of Fall", watercolor and gouache painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"A Splash of Fall", watercolor and gouache, 8x8"

This is a demonstration painting that I did for my Monday Mixed Media class. I began with a colourful watercolor underwash, and when it was dry, I added blue watercolour mixed with a juicy load of titanium white gouache to negatively paint the sky area -making the trees by not painting them. I added some translucent and opaque strokes to set up the bank area and a bit of opaque dry brush to create the sparkle on the water, and lifted the gouache to reveal the underpainting for the sun.
