Winter Morning 1 - A Work in Progress

I pulled out this painting that I had started a while ago (see post on 29 December 2014) and wanted to do a little more work on it and possibly have it completed today.

Starting with the pine trees on the right side of the painting, I used a mixture of French ultramarine blue and raw sienna for a warm green colour and put in the furthest away trees.

I added a little more blue to the green mix and put in the layer of next closest trees.

Before I could start on the distant pine trees in the background to the left side of the painting I had unexpected company arrive.

I will post this painting once the foreground pine trees have been completed.
