Using my personal reference photograph created this water colour painting. ( This tree stands in one of the silent and less crowded lanes near my complex and I carried my camera to photograph a few of them. )
The first layer was created using wet on wet technique, blocking in the values. Once it dried up used wet on dry technique to complete the painting.
For the first layer I used my usual camel water colour tubes. For the second layer I decided to add Winsor and Newton water colours which are pretty bright and dark colours.
