Van Dyke Brown
I masked off the tree trucks and a few of the limbs with masking fluid. I wanted to be able to make these stand out in the background among the foliage.
Note: I did not feel it necessary to mask off the barn or roof. Watercolor will only flow into areas where it is wet. I simply did not wet that area when I applied my water to the background.
The road is painted wet on wet with a wash of Payne's Gray and Van Dyke brown. When the wash dries, spatter some of the same color paint on the road. Leave some of the areas lighter for tire tracks.
Allow the road and the grassy areas to dry.
