Watercolor + pencil on coldpress. About 1 hour just before sunset on a wet, weirdly warm December day. I'm really happy with how my travel watercolor set-up is working out.
Was pretty hard to distinguish here between variations due to bark color vs. lighting - I wish I had been able to establish a stronger sense of depth and direction. But I think I'm getting better at picking a selective focus and establishing a sensible value structure.
