Bush Park

Today I’m practicing my brush technique with another quick sketch of Bush park. I worked from a reference photo I took during a walk in the park. I did this directly with a single brush in one pass. I did the blue sky first into wet paper. I then did the foreground on wet paper with a couple of mixed greens, a dash of blue, and a couple of browns. Next, I brushed in the tree trunks working from left to right across the page. Finally I added the background foliage.
