Adding the Water

I've started adding the water and reflections. I used a mixture of phthalo blue, dioxazine violet and sap green for the reflections of the trees in the water. A more intense mixture of the violet and ultramarine blue were added in the middle and I lifted out some whites in the water.

To show a contrast between the trees and buildings I decided to use a complementary color. I've added a dark red roof to the buildings and a red canopy to one of the boats.


  1. Your watercolors are lovely. I like that you share techniques and colors used as well.
    Thanks for joining my blog today! I hope I'll see you there often. I'm joining yours too. Happy Painting!
