ACEO - Lone Pine 2

I pulled out this painting I had worked on last year (see posts on 10 April 2016 and 15 March 2018) and I wanted to get it completed today.

Using a mix of French ultramarine blue and raw sienna I indicated some tall pine trees into the background.

I darkened the green colour by adding a little more of the Frenh ultramarine blue and started to add more detail to the pine needles on the tree.

Next I added burnt sienna to the green and put in the dead branches and some of the branches

Lastly, I added some grasses at the base of the tree using raw sienna and cadmium yellow.
