Lesson No.19 - Simplify As You Paint Away From The Focal Point
One last section of water to go! I have brushed in all the darks first, in the direction of the water flow. I then brushed in all the different rock colours that are reflecting into this section of water. (Those rocks just above this section are big enough to reflect into the water.) I smoothed it all out with the water colours we have been using throughout the painting except the Cerulean Blue - Tasman Blue or Ultramarine Blue with Carmine. This will be a good base before we add some detail with a fine brush.
