I did this painting a few days ago and took a lot of photos as I went along, so I could put together a demo. The demo is written and available as a PDF for instant download in my Etsy shop

I talk a lot about the importance of values in the demo. I find myself wanting to use much more restrained color lately and working to "knock down" colors from how they appear in life. I like the old-timey Corot look more and more. 

This was painted with a full palette. My first shot at using a limited earth color-ish palette wasn't as successful as I hoped it would be, but I want to experiment more with it. Maybe I'll do a demo on it too.
