New Watercolor landscape painting demonstration

Overcast day over green valley, from Mt Tamborine, Queensland
I have just finished posting my latest watercolor landscape demonstration on

The painting covers topics like the mixing of various greens with watercolor paint, tones and aerial perspective, as well as the use of foliage to direct the eye in a painting.

You can find the this demo at this link: Painting a watercolor landscape of a green valley scene .

I hope you find it of interest.

Happy painting,
