Using combinations of greens, blues and reds and a touch of yellow I created all of the colors used in this painting. I varied the amounts of colors each time I mixed a new shade so that subtle variations are found in each color. The light misty quality was achieved by using very thin washes of color. Gradually a few more solid trees were added closer to the foreground to help create a sense of depth within the painting. Land masses were added as well to "anchor" the trees.
