Wasted no time and started a new landscape

After finishing Snow Lake Trail, I wasted no time and started painting a new landscape. This is from a photo taken at my May painting trip to Moses Coulee. At that time I painted a scene looking toward South West from the dog leg corner of Palisades Rd. This one is looking toward South East from the same point. In this direction the table rocks are lower but have more steps and variations, then continuous. Also I liked the color change in the foreground dirt road. The size is 18x28.
It's more looking into the direction light is coming from. So not much distinction between shadowed area and cast shadows. Also some part of ground is darker because of clouds above. Those would be the main challenges in addition to the texture of rocks.
