Colorful Mountain Landscapes

John Adams, northwest watercolorist spent a day here at the North Cascades Basecamp teaching a watercolor workshop on Sunday, Feb 19th.  John's demonstration illustrated how to use a colorful backwash and blending of paints to create a magical winter scene.  The aspen trees, the mountain backdrop, and even the snow in the foreground seemed to come alive on the palette.

The group spent for latter 3 hours creating their own magic with these techniques in mind. 
 Great work everyone!
