This piece started out as a smooth wet in wet wash of a blue sky going into pink and then yellow layers near the bottom. Once it was dry, I looked at it and followed the faint lines of irregularity in the washes and instead created a scene of distance. I used a 1″ flat brush for most of the near mountain and the color minglings, and then blotted out some areas to suggest foliage and sotol plants. Flat brushes hold less water than round brushes, and I got more of the linear lines of the mountain texture using the flat.
