Here's the other field from the same photo as yesterday's. This was a demo to show how surface and underpainting variances can affect the finished painting. This one had a watercolor underpainting on white Wallis paper. Below is the reference photo (greatly enhanced in Photoshop) and the other painting, which was on my usual gold-primed gatorboard with a warm pastel underpainting. In both cases, I allowed the underpainting to influence my application of pastel and color choices in the finished paintings.
