Full Moon High and Over - First day

As a companion picture to "Cuckmere Meanders to Seaford Head" I have chosen a view of the same valley but a mile inland at another favourite location, "High and Over", a National Trust site midway between Cuckmere Haven and Alfriston in East Sussex. I intend this one to be under the light of a full moon and want a magical feel to it without being a Fantasy painting as such. Atkinson Grimshaw is my starting point on this one, my main concern being that I don't want the painting to be too dark and I am looking at a blue/orange complementary axis again but this time much less saturated colour using Yellow Ochre, Prussian Blue and Permanent Orange as the root colours.
