A walk on the countryside

Another tutorial painting by Tim Wilmot.

And this was a fun one, since I’ve never painted a countryside scene using watercolour.

I was excited about painting some trees, grass and bushes agan, and really get to use some of those yellow and greens.

So I started with this sketch:

I forgot to take a photo of the first wash, but this is the final result after the second layer:

A walk on the countryside

I’m very pleased with how it turned out, both with the proportions and the perspectives.

I think the leafs on the tree turned out really nice, and the road looks good with a little curve on the end.

The grass on the left side got a bit dark, though. And the hay bales should have had some stronger contrasts to pop out.

But all in all it was a fun and rewarding session πŸ™‚

Now, on to the next!
