Shades of Grey - A Work in Progress

Today I pulled out this painting that I have been working on (see posts on 22 March and 17 August 2017), which I thought would be fitting for Hallowe'en night.

Using a dark mix of French ultramarine blue and raw sienna I put in the grasses with a little more detail on the closer field, leaving some areas of the white paper showing through which I will fill in later.

With light and dark mixtures of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I started painting in the trunks and branches of the three closest trees in the foreground.

I will post this painting again, once more of the trees have been completed.
