Olive Greenscape

JUST FINISHED! This is an abstract which is really a landscape. I love doing these.  I first paint the background in watercolor - the field, the hills or trees in the distance and the sky. Then I add the detail with watercolor crayons and pastels.  I decided to do both the sky and the field in olive green. That's a departure for me.  I am trying to work with different colors.  I added the blue for contrast. I think I will call this  piece "Olive greenscape". SOLD

great color. I love the depth and character. The layers are interesting.
