Started over on the sea grape painting. This looks more warm than it is = it's actually a lemony yellow laid down first, leaving open white areas. I then drew over that with colored watercolor pencils and will begin painting, leaving white and yellow areas behind the trunks.
I put down swatches of color of the granulating colors and "tree trunk" colors I wanted to use in this one. I have a lot to choose from and some good granulating colors (all from Daniel Smith).
