Standing Water #Watercolor #Strathmore #Aquarius II

Since the theme for my Wednesday Watercolor class this session is water, I decided to play around on my own, and try to get the look of standing water.

Painted on an eighth size sheet of Strathmore Aquarius II using Silver Black Velvet Brushes, 1 inch flat, and size 6 & 16 rounds.  Colors used were Daniel Smith Lunar Blue (sky and water), and Qor Green Gold, and just a touch of Daniel Smith Quinacridone Burnt Orange.

I used a reference photo that I found at the Morguefile archive.
