Ochre Fields

My second practice piece. No reference photo. Just winged it from imagination. And depending on how the colours appeared on the paper.

First, I started with a wet-on-wet wash for the sky.

Gradually added more washes for the field.

Then decided it needed a focus. Added the tree line in the horizon. That completed this simple practice piece.

BTW, this piece was given away as a gift, to a friend who works at a teashop. I was pleasantly surprised that someone actually liked it enough to take it.
