Looking up in the middle of the trail on this #NatureDoodlewash hike to find a beautuful view of sky amidst the trees. Nature is full of amazing sights in every direction!
This was a simple painting. I limited my palette to cobalt blue, burnt umber, sap green and yellow ochre. Easy enough. The sun was added in with white acrylic paint (very lightly applied) and a bit of white china marker. I think I’ll stick with these in future until I find another technique. I’ve experimented with chinese white and white gouache in the past but I wasn’t too happy with the results. Obviously I still haven’t got it right but I haven’t practised light rays enough – which is something I should do since I love the effect when other artists achieve it.
