Making further progress on the rocks, I used a combination of yellow ochre, raw umber and burnt sienna lightened with titanium white. Generally I brush in a mid-tone then add darker areas such as the deeper cracks etc then use a stippling motion of the brush to create texture and variation amongst the rocks. Sometimes when a section has dried, I'll glaze a slightly darker color over some areas to adjust tones and create depth. So far I feel that the rocks are a little light in overall tone so I'm sure that I'll have a bit of glazing to do later on. Next session should see this one finished although I'll probably live with it for a few days to see if there is anything else needed.
