Sketch out drawing. Make sure the top of the left hand
tree pencil lines are not too visible.
Colours: I used cadmium red, ultramarine and lemon
yellow as I want a bright look. You could use madder lake,
raw sienna, ultramarine for more muted atmosphere
Paint whole paper with a mix of mostly yellow and a
very little red. The colour should be lighter at the top.
When it dries it will only be slightly more coloured
than the paper (so a lot of water!)
Using mixtures of yellow and red allow the paint to
mix on the paper. Add some blue into the yellow in
one area. Try not to mix all 3 colours (will be muddy)
Dry. Add a really dark tone of blue + red on the left,
leaving irregular white spaces around the yellow/orange.
With the same colur but more red paint the shadows
under the yellow leaves
Add a dark tone on the right to balance the purple on
the left. paint in the trunks, avoid painting the same
colour and width
