River in forest. This is Giber Å (Giber River) in Moesgaard Forest, but I've changed the background and some of the trees, so it's partly an imagined scene.
Watercolor, 40 x 30 cm, on Saunders Waterford HP 300 g paper.
In addition to "normal" watercolors, I've also used a lot of white - both chinese white for lightening certain areas, and titan white for some leaves, and finally some white gouache for the white parts of the river.

Old oak trees, Moesgaard, south of Aarhus.
Watercolor, 31 x 23 cm (12.2 x 9.1 inch), on Saunders Waterford 300 g HP paper. Mostly winsor & Newton watercolor and a little white M. Graham gouache (for thin branches and some highligts on leaves).

This is a new version of the painting from the previous post from Lisbjerg Forest! This time without the sunbeams - and this time I used watercolor. And this time the proportions are more correct, on the previous one, in oil, I had compressed the height to make the trees fit on a canvas, and something wasn't right about that. I didn't paint the sunbeams this time, because I wanted a different feel to this forest picture.
Watercolor, 24 x 36 cm, on Fabriano Studio 300 g CP paper.
