ACEO - Dusk 3

Today we are under a Meteorological Alert with rainfall warnings 1.5"-2" (35-50mm), a severe thunderstorm watch and warnings, flooding, hail and downpour alerts with the temperature at 72F (22C) and feeling like 88F (31C) with the humidity.

I thought I would work on this piece that I had started last year (see posts on 08 March and 13 July 2017).

Mixing various greens using combinations of Antwerp blue, French ultramarine blue, raw sienna and new gamboge; I started putting in the pine trees starting with the furthest back trees and working my way forward.

Next I used mixes of raw sienna and burnt sienna to put in the grasses at the base of the closer trees.
