"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Colours six and seven

Two shades of brown for the trees in the mid foreground. I had originally intended that these trees would be a dark green, but I decided that the image was becoming a little overpowered with cool greens and greys and needed a warmer tone as a contrast.
Only two more colours to go; a dark green and then a final dark for the shadowed areas on the crag. I didn't get it finished in time for Christmas, but it should be done over the next couple of days. Then just time to get one framed ready to submit to the East Coast Open Exhibition, at Scarborough Art Gallery in mid January.
