Practice Trees

Journal page, 6" x 8" watercolor paints. Oct. 7, 2012.
I am practicing the trees, in the background of "Skies, Light and Atmosphere, in watercolor" by David Bellamy. I need to improve my foreground, my tree shapes, and colors. I like the faint conifers in the background, I realized they were not green, but blue gray faded into the distance. The closer ones can be dark green. A few bare branches, and a scene with background trees, individual trees, and meadow and grasses. It is just a small part of the page, I'm amazed I got so much detail in the bottom half of the page. I really like the way it all turned out.
