In this second session I wanted to work on the sky and define the contours if the background trees. I mixed burnt umber with Turquoise, white and grey. It's as dark as I want it. Brooding but atmospheric with hints of reds, blues and greens. Similar palette as the little studies I did almost a year ago on paper. You can see the blog posts in the archives so you know what Im talking about.
The trees in the background so far are shaped but need further work. I've mixed and applied some Prussian Blue and Van Dyke Brown. Next I want to work a little on the main tree trunks and that will help me decide on the right action to take on the middle and foreground.
