Watercolor Progression




Same location as the painting in the previous blog entry... Pushed in a little more Raw Umber into this one...... Of note:  Windsor Newton makes two different Payne's Grays.....The Windsor Newton brand and the Windsor Newton Cotman brand of Payne's Gray.  I prefer the Cotman brand of Payne's Gray mixed with various earth tones.
