Field Of Dreams - stages 1 to 3

After finishing the quite fiddly private commission and as it's not many days before I go away for Christmas I decided to paint something small and relatively simple. It was originally going to be a pure landscape painting but it somehow changed into a more figurative piece based on a photo session with the lovely Naomi Wood. Now that I have put in the colour underpainting using oranges and reds I have decided to go in this direction with colours that are a lot warmer than I originally envisaged. The sky will have a fair amount of sunset-lit clouds and I hope to keep the painting moody but with a strong colour design.
Stage one was "drawn" up with a small bristle brush using a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liqiun and turpentine.
Stage two has a Zinc White/Manganese Violet mix in the sky with some Permanent Orange/Manganese Violet on the land and figure.
Stage three is beginning to establish where the painting is going particularly in terms of colour.
