Autumn Poem

This is a watercolor on hot press paper. I scraped out the trees while the wash was still wet. This method is really cool because some of the background color shows in the area that is scraped. I left a lot of the original wash untouched. I always feel like I've accomplished something really artistic when this happens because it's so easy to cover that beautiful original wash. I also left a lot of light areas. This can be hard to do! I added accents to the trees and used a little acrylic ink to clean up some of the edges of the trunks. I'm very pleased.
