Tropical Vision - Painting A Day

Had a busy day today, and didn't have as much time to paint, so I got a late start on my daily painting. I switched back to into watercolor mode to create this Tropical Vision. This wasn't for any particular reason, other than it had been a little while since I had painted in watercolor.

There is not too much to mention about techniques, because there is nothing that departs from a pretty traditional watercolor. The sky was painted on a wet surface. The palm trees were painted with a palette knife and a rigger brush. the water was painted with a dry brush technique and then glazed when the first layer dried.

The dimensions of this piece are 10 x 15 inches. Materials used are watercolors and just a bit of gouache.

This painting is for sale in my Etsy shop: DreamON (Click on the image or the highlighted name DreamON to be automagically transported there.)
