Vale - stage 1

In preparation for a larger painting I am trying the colours I intend to use on this one located at Kingley Vale, West Sussex.
Over a lemon acrylic ground I applied with a rag a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin. I think these monochromes suit linen better than canvas as the grain of the canvas breaks up the colour too much. On the other hand this could be turned to an advantage if I want something more broken up in the future - maybe with thicker paint for example.
Oil on canvas 11 3/4" x 11 3/4''.
