Road in Autumn a Watercolor.

Here is a little painting I did while showing a young student some things about painting in watercolor. It is a simple road snaking through the autumn trees.

Autumn Road, watercolor by Adron
After a quick sketch I did a wash of yellow over most of it. I dropped in some reds and greens and let them blend. I did a wash of blue grey for the asphalt.  After things dried I began to layer in darker values of color with a dabbing approach. I mixed the colors on the paper. It was necessary to give the background a clear wash to soften things a bit. I used a little dry brush on the road. The tree trunks were drawn in with a small brush.
