I will be sharing this on the Art Impressions blog this Saturday for the 2nd February Watercolour Weekend. Time for another scene today, using the 5431 - WC Simple Scene Rocky River:
I coloured the entire scene stamp in Tombow #969/565, stamped it off, and then onto my Canson XL Watercolor Paper. I added in the two deer from 5427 - WC Silhouette Deer both coloured in #969 and placed with my stamp positioner. The mountains were painted with #533 for the farthest one, as it is a lighter shade, and #565 for the closer one, appearing a little darker. I added shades of #N65 and #969 to my rocks, adding layers to build up the colour, and using #565 for the shadowy parts. The hillsides and grassy areas were painted with #177 and touches of #076, again making it a little darker in the foreground. I used 5010 - WC Tree Set 1, colouring 2 of the trees in #249 to add in the pine trees, and used the marker directly on the paper to add the trees way in the background. I used one of the bare trees from 5372 - WC Mini Foliage to add in the bushes and gave them a few berries and bits of grass around their base.
I wanted the stream to contrast with the hills, so used #526 to paint in the water and dabbed it onto the sky. I darkened up the undersides of the deer, and added a slight reflection in the water.
