Spring Earth

For todays work I started by painting raw sienna over the entire surface.  I pressed it with wax paper to give it some texture.  Once it dried I colored on it with blue, brown and yellow crayons to pick up the textural lines.  To brighten it a bit I applied a thin wash of yellow watercolor.  To finish it I glued on a strip of wax paper down the left side that had some colors on it that seemed to work well.  I called it spring earth because it seemed to have a richness  of newly turned earth and the hints of color speak to the good things to come from it as the season matures.
