Landscape painting work in progress

Work in progress 1

  Working outdoors near where I made recent drawings.

I'm looking down from near the top of a mountain onto tomato fields and then across and upwards as the hills recede to the mountain opposite.

I began with under-painting in thin paint to set the harmony and mood;  mix of ochre/violet/white and loosely placed the main features with thin raw umber.  I've shown more work in progress images below.  The completed painting is at the top of the post.

In this session, I managed half an hour before it began to rain and had to run for cover.

Perfect weather conditions today.  Still a long way to go with this painting, but more progress.
Work in progress 4.
