County Road - stage 2

The tonal underpainting stage using the same mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin applied with a rag for the sky and a couple of Flat brushes for the landscape. I changed my mind about the colours and indeed the sky over my breakfast coffee this morning although I am keeping the dark sky at the horizon.
Incidentally you will see that the canvas was sagging a bit on the stretcher in stage 1 so I sprayed the back of the canvas with soapy water and it tightened up nicely overnight.
