A watercolour landscape painting of australian bush scene by avril e jean

I was quite daunted when I approached this painting – the leaf littered and rocky ground, with burned trees and grass trees. What do I put in? What do I leave out? I have no interest in painting all the details in. So I made it splooshy and loose and that seemed to work.

Grass trees are awful to paint. I just tore up a painting I just did of one, it was horrendous. New challenge I think, try and draw one that does not suck.
