I don't really know where I'm going with this one - I've been looking at a lot of YouTube instructional videos on how to paint trees in watercolours, but I'm not sure if they're helping or just making me feel inadequate! Their paintings always look better than mine!
So I'm going to go back to basics - mixing colours and trying them out with my good old aboriginal snails!
Composition-wise, I love this photo I took in a park in Tokyo two years ago. I also love the really dark values in the shadows. Maybe I should paint it in greys first, to really figure out how to render these darks?
