100 Washes: #71 #72

Continuing on with my 100 washes challenge on this blog, so here goes: these are two more in my pursuit of night time reflections.

This is all wet in wet, painted several stripes of light yellow and then prussian blue and winsor violet in between. This let each color float into each other just a bit.
Masked out little spots of light, which I haven't removed yet. Very wet all over, dropped in violet and crimson in the tree, then prussian blue around the tree but leaving space around the tree for the color to float in. I like the glow this created.
