drawing at the heron rookery #2

roughly 2 hours on this step

This is the first layer of color. I used the hard paper blending stumps to push the color into the paper over the sky, trees and ground. I like to fill in the tooth of the paper with color, and I can build up more layers this way.I used mineral spirits to blend down the green of the river. I want the water to be a different texture than the rest of the picture. The paper is still a little wet in this shot, but it will dry lighter. Then I can build up layers on the river too.
