Refreshing little streams are found throughout the Texas Hill Country. After establishing the upper portion of the babbling brook I block in the limestone rocks of the waterfalls.
Next the tumbling water is dragged over the rocky drop.
Got my colors all set to paint the pond in the foreground. #1. Two mixes of Ultramarine Blue + White. #2. A couple of mixtures of Pthalo Blue + Ultramarine Blue + White. #3. Two different shades of Pthalo Blue + Cadmium Orange + White. #4. White + Ultramarine Blue. #5. White + Pthalo Blue. #6. White + Turquoise Blue. #7. Pthalo Blue + White. #8. Two variations of Turquoise Blue + White.
VIDEO! Painting the cool pool for our big bay to enjoy.
Now the water is painted I finish the horse’s legs.
Sunlight, streaming in from the right, splashes across the surface of the pond to spotlight the horse.
VIDEO! Blocking in the rocks and cascade of water in the front right corner. Tomorrow we’ll be planting all of the wildflowers on the limestone outcropping. Hope you’ll come watch. Bring your gardening gloves and give me a hand. Hugs,
