Tualatin Hills Nature Park

Tualatin Hills Nature Park, work in progress. 14H x 20W inches watercolors on 140 lb cold pressed

Tualatin Hills Nature Park, work in progress. 14H x 20W inches watercolors on 140 lb cold pressed, may or may not be finished. Setting this one aside for a bit and starting another painting because I don’t want to overwork this and lose the space. I hoped to highlight the generous chunks of glowing moss that characterize winter and early Spring here in Oregon with the light source, more depth and shadows.

Left, first phase and above after puddles of water wear allowed to soak in certain areas then was blown with a straw. Paint was also removed in some areas. This created a much more dynamic painting.
