Base layer watercolour on paper, top layer - tracing paper with ink and aquatint pencil.
Very cool. I like the hatching marks on the trees. The black line really informs the shape allowing you to infill with those diagonal lines that still look right. It may be interesting to play about with this idea in other areas. You have the same effect on your trees up the mountain side as well.
I really like the way you’ve described different elements in this picture. I love it Helen.
Thanks Tricia and Sonia for your comments! There is lots of potential for experimentation with this sort of thing.
Yes there are so many option just with this one image.
