I started this painting last week. First an overall tone of orange. Then burnt umber wash to the darker areas of the composition. Luckily I remembered that I wanted to photo the process before I got too much blue sky going.
In the second photo I think I went with the dark green next and then I broke with my usual method and applied the lightest value. Just to see what would happen. Sometimes I really like the painting best at this "barely begun" stage.
