June 21, 2010 - Day 315

Da Vinci watercolor & Prismacolor colored pencil on
Strathmore Windpower 140lb cold press watercolor paper

I attempted to paint this twice in watercolor but I couldn't get my washes even. In frustration I grabbed my colored pencils and just colored over the watercolor. To increase my frustration I found that even though I have 8 shades of blue colored pencil I didn't have just a plain primary blue or a very light blue. I tried layering my blues with white but still didn't achieve the color on the background hills that I wanted.

All that aside, I think that this would make a nice painting if the color was applied properly.
