The Making of this Watercolor
Orange and yellow to start...
No green used, ever...red over the orange and blues over yellow... making greens...
More color, different blues over yellow, blues for more depth...
Finally on to the sky, two different blues, wet in wet, and snow shadows, same blues that were used for the sky but used differently, wet on dry, and lifting green pear's shadow adding red for the reflecting glow.
