I decided to put the glitter war painting aside for a week or so, because I was getting a little burned out on it.
In an attempt to perform a mental software reset, I painted this today very quickly. My goal was to paint this without revisiting washes. I was successful in leaving things largely untouched after the first wash, but I painted the trees in layers. First, I painted branches and the trunks in browns and reds. Then I added leaves with tiny squiggles of color. After that dried I added some washes or color on top, and then spritzed pigment by flicking it off of a toothbrush. I like the way it came out, but next time I’ll block some parts off when I spritz pigment with the tooth brush to help define the composition better.
