Rest Stop - stage 4

Still not quite finished the sky so I got it ready to finish tomorrow after it drying overnight and also painted in some more of the Burnt Sienna/Winsor Violet mix over the foreground.
I always try and introduce/find diagonals in landscapes as they add movement and dynamism to what is essentially a static and potentially boring scene. In this picture the diagonal comes from the line that connects the bush in the left corner to the waste bin to the rest stop itself and finally to the small isolated tree on the right neat the horizon. It doesn't have to be a drawn/painted line, in this case it's the way the different elements connect.
