More color studies

For the dark ones, no masking was used. Just picked up the paint with a clean brush and clear water.

Finished Cooper Lake color study

I masked off everything but the birch tree trunks and spattered them with a toothbrush. I've yet to do the others!

Color Studies and can't believe it's been so long

Didn't realize I hadn't posted anything in such a long time. I've been busy working on a new watercolor book- doing the drawings for the drawing section. These will also be in the proposed book (wish me luck with the publisher). This is Cooper Lake. I used white artists tape to mask out the foreground trees. I will also post a finished study so you can see where it can go but for here I was interested in color. I've got more of these but couldn't seem to get them all in one post!
These are 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches. the one on the right is even smaller.
