Because this process had so much waiting time, I decided to image the steps;
with each additional round of pigments the paper had to thoroughly dry.
The water and fog was a buildup of the same mix, just diluted as necessary.
After it dried, I began to soften the edges and then remove paint to brighten the sunset.
I don’t know how the sandy area granulated…
all of this was done in a watercolor Handbook Journal which has very textured paper.
My notes, which were on the facing page,
and the final bit of dark brushed linear leaf and trunk imagery.
Below, this is all part of the New Caledonia virtual sketchwalk from Aniko Szedlak.
