“Misty Mountains” a landscape painting

Mistic Mt

This watercolor is 11 by 15 it sells for $200.00

It is watercolor on illustration board.

This painting is a triad painting, one yellow, one red, and one blue was placed on the paper with water and allowed to mingle. Where by the artists sees what is happening and decides what the painting wants to be. In this case I saw trees and cabins. Of course I’m sure I was influenced to paint this because I was in the mountains. I would venture to guess a lot of folks who think of triads think the colors have to be primaries but this isn’t the case. The yellow was Naples yellow, the blue was Andrew’s turquoise, and the red was actually burnt sienna. So you see the colors just have to be in the family of the three primaries to work.
