Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Lay-in your design using a #2 pencil and avoid drawing lines that are too dark.
  • Add a gradated wash to the sky which is slightly darker towards the top. No need to pre-wet the paper if you are working small as I am.
  • Add a gradated wash to the foreground with a slightly darker wash towards the bottom.
  • Add a few dots of thicker paint into the wet foreground area that are slightly darker and more pigment.
  • Allow to dry!
  • Add the mountains and gray path
  • Allow to dry
  • Add darker values to the mountain
  • Paint the distant trees on the left using thicker paint
