Lone Pine


The hills around Marin County turn a lovely wheaten color in summer. I have been trying to find ways to reflect them in an impressionist or atmospheric way in my watercolors.  Need a lot of practice still. I used burnt sienna, raw sienna Payne's grey and some sepia indian ink for the tree and darks. Also used granulation medium for the hill textures.
