detail of tree barkWhen doing a painting it is often a good idea  to study the details to make magic happen. The tree from a distance seems to be gray, but when looked at closer the other colors seen bring light and shadow. Texture is created and interest added with the reddish brown shades you see in the closeup of the bark. Daniel Smith Quinacridone Sienna watercolor might be a good one to use to add a spark to a watercolor painting of this tree.
