Riverbank Trees

A mild winter and early spring.

I used a pointed round bristle to paint the foliage in the trees. Recently I’ve been using a single bristle, a No. 10 filbert, to do the majority of the painting. Although the filbert shape is very versatile (strokes shapes from round to flat) and can represent the shapes of distant trees comfortably, its too distinctive for close up foliage. The pointed round allows a variety of stroke sizes and shapes.

This painting uses only 3 colours (Yellow Ochre, Permanent Rose, Ultramarine Blue) plus black and white. There is no medium used, only White Spirits.

The painting is 12″ x 9″.
