In northern California winters, delicate mists roll in from the Pacific, softening and coloring the land with muted blues and lavenders. In this transparent watercolor scene of hills with a view of Mt. Diablo, I wanted to paint the dark calligraphy of the native oak tree branches against the lovely soft misty blues that hovered in the valleys; a delicate balance.
This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.
