This is the piece I did for Colour Collective's 'warm grey' theme. I don't have any warm grey paint (I do have cool grey though) so I decided to digitally paint over a sketch I had done earlier in the week.

I was so busy that I only managed to post a small work in progress at the time, but I kept working on it on and off over the next few days. I didn't want to work it up too much, or worry about it too much, but I did want to finish it. I mucked about with drawing bushes a la Eyvind Earle, and generally just enjoyed being rather scribbly with my chalky brush (having spent all week doing tight ink outlining).
