How to paint a river estuary – part 4

This is part 4 of my commission to create a painting of a river estuary.

In this step I put in the basic tree colours. Again it was not important to be exact. I used lemon yellow and cerulean blue adding raw umber to break the tone. I never use greens straight from the tube. At most I would take tube greens with a suitable amount of a complementary colour mixed in. Water helped to dilute the paint for the lighter areas.  The darker greens were achieved with a touch of ultramarine blue in the mix. I sent the image to my customer by way of a progress report to keep him in the picture so to speak.

I´ll post the next steps asap.
