Christmas Landscape 3 Finished

I really like how these paintings are turning out. At first they don’t look so good but after some details they are really vibrant.

What went well?

I was able to start simple on the trees and add a lot of strokes to get the look I wanted without too much detail.

What didn’t go so well?

I wish I could have started the next painting but my energy is lacking today and I have a lot of other things to complete.

What did I learn?

Certain tubes of color seem to adjust value and hue after drying more than others. One day if I get really serious about gouache I would do studies on each tube of paint and see how colors change depending on mixtures.
