Frozen Trees

Here's yesterday's work, 7.5x5.5 watercolor with white wax crayon accents on Arches 140 lb cold press paper.  Using no reference and no pencil, I drew linear marks both horizontal and vertical on dry paper, then put in neutral washes of raw umber, Prussian blue, sepia, and carbazole violet.  Negative painting was the focus of riverbank tree trunks, branches, and limbs hanging over icy waters.
