Mountains Into Plains

Colorado Front Range
Watercolor on 140lb paper, 10.5″ x 8″

This view is seen near the view in the last post. When traveling east it’s one of the first sights of the plains beyond the mountains.

I taped the paper to a large acrylic sheet to give it a firm back while on my easel. It’s lit from above by a long LED shop light as part of the new setup I’m trying. The brushes used were two ox hair brushes. One was a small round and the other a medium large flat. For paints I mostly used my own Payne’s grey mix (1:1 of ultramarine and raw umber), burnt sienna, and ivory black. There’s also some cerulean blue gouache, mostly in the sky, and a little bit of green earth hue and Indian yellow.
