Messing with a new medium - for me


i have been know as a watercolor artist and am very familiar with techniques and limitation of the medium.
Recently i was asked to do something on glass, which watercolor would not work, obviously, and so i got out the acrylics and did fine with it.

Autumn has almost finished, but one scene stuck in my head, but i did not see watercolor working.
Why?
The paint in watercolor is transparent, which means you overlay colors and strokes to get the desired effect.  paper also plays a large role as well.

The scene was one which i need to edit, but contained multiple types of trees with various colors - my fist day of painting the scene:




More to come
