Near Coniston Lake District

Sometimes the simplest things prove to work well. This is a path alongside a stream in the Lake District. SimmTrace™ was used for the drawing, I wanted to get the placement of the silver birch trees accurately, and the perspective of the path. A limited pallete was used, which helps with harmony. I will do anotther video soon, on overlaying warm and cool washes for color interest.
