I covered up most of canvas quickly with mid-tones. It looks dull at this moment but I think that' all right for now. I also started departing from the reference photo and arranging the bigger shapes in the foreground to have a diagonal line from the center on the right edge of the canvas to the left-bottom corner. It shows as if there is a passage along the line. This kind of change in composition never occurred to me until now. It's another influence from the last workshop.
However, it's coming to the difficult stage how to make the foreground lively and let the ridge shining with variations of colors. Which I somehow need to overcome.
