Aerial perspective in rural landscape

Watercolour exercises 24 (10)

Study of a landscape, the Sphagnum Bog on Hampstead Heath on practice paper 280 gsm Fabriano NOT watercolour paper, Winsor & Newton watercolour sticks, sable 0/2 – 10, 2″ hobby brush and large squirrel brush, masking fluid and wax.

On a research point, I like the granular effect of the paint in Frank Perrot’s paintings and thought this might be worth exploring even in a landscape painting, but perhaps better suited to rock formations which is later. And I like the way Elaine Daily-Birnbaum simplifies her shapes without losing volume or significant detail.
