I removed the masking fluid from the tree trunks and applied greens mixed from antwerp blue and cad orange and burnt sienna raggedly with a fairly dry brush, being sure to leave plenty of sky. Then I applied a mixture of rose madder genuine and yellow ochre to the tree trunk and quickly dropped in a mixture of cobalt blue and burnt sienna along the shaded side of the trunk. As the limbs grew too narrow to do this I mixed the two paint puddles and just applied that mix to the smaller branches.
