Autmun colours Mount Wilson, Blue Mountains, New South Wales

This is a watercolour painting I started just before my wife and I took a three week trip to the Australian outback. I finished it on the weekend. It was an interesting challenge to paint all that green in with the bright autumn colours and I am very happy with the result.

I started the painting by splattering water where all the foliage was going to be and then moved on to splatter the warm and cool colours of the foliage.

I used a sponge to create a lot of the final foliage texture.

I will  be doing a full demonstration of how I painted this watercolour landscape on my PaintingWithWatercolors.com website next month.
