Peaceful Places # 3 – Inktense Blocks and Watercolour

This is a scene from one of our local wooded areas. I love trees and when I cannot get out amongst them the next best thing is to draw and paint them. This scene was done, at home on a very wet afternoon. I started by blocking in the shadow areas first, using the pigment from Inktense Blocks. Water colour was added later as it can be glazed over the initial washes as they are permanent. I took a series of photos, of the different stages and these can be seen by looking at this set on flickr.
