Quince Tree

Quince Tree
watercolor, 11x14"
To purchase please visit my Etsy shop or contact me.

This past week I taught a course on watercolor landscapes with texture. The painting that I demonstrated is of a quince tree that was behind the resort where I taught in Spain.
The first thing I showed was how to do light washes of atmospheric color to create a mood.  Then when that was dry, I painted the trees behind by splattering and spraying paint. The quince tree was done the same way but with more saturated paint. The grass is done with a fan brush and a bit of salt in the front.

The textures in this one are brilliant. The chair in the middle of no where makes it so interesting.
