ACEO - Pastel Morning 1

I wanted to work wet on wet and play with a few different colours in a sky.

Starting with new gamboge as a base color, I painted in some areas of the centre and towards the bottom side edges of the sky. I then put in areas of alizarin crimson into the sides and some areas toward the top of the sky.

Lastly I added some French ultramarine blue into the top of the sky and around the side edges.

As the paper was drying I used a mixture of the three colours and I indicated land, rocks and trees.
