Fall is starting to show some colors in Stockholm and some of the bushes are covered with red berries. It’s a subject i like to paint every year so here you have the 2019 version !
I don’t have any reference picture to show you this time because they are all in my head ! During my excursions in the city i’m observing the nature a lot and i’m looking at trees and bushes. All this images i gathered are my inspiration for today’s painting !
But before starting this watercolor painting i need to choose the color wisely. It’s a part of art i like a lot, that free possibility to play with whatever color you want. And be able to tell different stories with each association of colors i put together. So today i started this story by choosing Aussie red gold. The perfect gold color for fall. And i added winsor red to it, because they are playing well together and it’s the perfect color for berries. And to balanced all this warm colors i need cold colors. Indanthrene blue and Carbazole violet are the perfect contrasted match. And when mix together they make a very beautiful night blue.
