QS #05: Snowy Mountain

I really like working with the new poster paint. I am starting to understand how to mix the water in order to get the opacity or transparency that I want. This quick study was done in about 15 minutes on 6"x9" Canson Watercolor pad. I used a 1" wash brush for the entire piece. I like using a big brush on a small canvas; it forces me to see and think only in big shapes and only indicate detail through simple brush strokes.
