This is the next stage for this little oil study on paper which I started earlier this afternoon. I've been working on the background and the foreground. Mixing in Raw Umber with white, blue and orange-red to create a gray field. The foreground has a little Yellow Ochre and some blue and Raw Umber. The little strip in the middle ground has a red- orange with some Raw Umber and some flecks of green.
The next stage will tie the whole image together. I'm planning a warm impure orange for the trees, with a tinge of pink and darks of Raw Umber with red. See how it goes......
So far I'm happy with the result and I'm eager to start the next session hopefully tomorrow evening.
