Fast impression of Mt Shasta in watercolor


I did this fast watercolor in my journal of Mt. Shasta. Never really did a landscape. Think I will give this another try on watercolor paper in a larger than 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Still learning what this paint will do. I've got a really long ways to go. Here it is for the record as it were.

Alan, what I like about this is the way you use your brushstrokes to describe the terrain in an expressive way. Keep it up!

Enjoyed visiting your blog. Nice work on Mt. Shasta. Loved the little TV stand sketch and the mirror reflections.
