Not A Painting (Yet)

Here's a look at what will be my next project. It's such a wide panorama that I had to overlap 3 full-page photographs to get all of it. The very light-colored trees in the foreground will be a challenge, since watercolor paints are (mostly) transparent, and we don't use white. I'll have find a way to mask the intricate branches so they're unaffected when I'm painting all around them. Then I'll remove the masking and paint in the light purple-grey of the wood, and the darker places that are cast in shadow. I can't wait to start.
