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.
