We just returned from a family vacation up at Donner Lake.  There was so much beauty all around, but one of the views that never fails to take my breath away is the lakeside Aspen trees and how they dance and shimmer when the wind passes through.  When I read the suggested prompt for today (#worldwatercolormonth) – Wind in the trees – it was the perfect match up.  To simulate their shimmer, I used Daniel Smith’s Metallic Watercolor (German Silver) and Fine Tec’s Metallic watercolors (also from Germany).  Muted Veridian, Indigo and Veriter Blue completed the palette.  Now I wish I could record the audio with it!!
