This was done is very short bursts of work. When I move to full time painting I will surely need to keep several painting going at once. I need to take a lot of fresh looks. I did add some burt sienna to the deeper greens in the trees (yellow, burn sienna and ultra-marine blue).

So far using three colors: UM Blue, Cadmium Yellow Medium (Susan Scheewe) and Venetian Red and quite a bit of a very cheap "titanium white" which is hardly even opaque but great for mixing and altering the key of colors. I used two brushes so far- a number 8 bristle and a 1.5 inch painters brush (for the foreground).
New project. Trying to set it up to do Saturday. Sketched it out and put on some base colors tonight. It is inspired by an early CA painting of John Gamble. On the right will be two trees and there will be a lot of rocks and flowers in the foreground.
