Acrylic Bluebonnet Landscape, Laying the Foundation

Work in process photos always look a bit funny...  But I had a great day Saturday, painting with my Austin artist friend, Gail. 
You have to imagine a small abandoned farmhouse in the left part of the white shape with a tree trunk in the vertical bit.  1/3 of the sky will be covered with leaves and branches and the right end of the white shape will be distant trees.  The distant blue of the bluebonnet field will be toned down a little, as will the mid-range bluebonnets which are not yet complete.  The green in the front will be filled with more discernable bluebonnets.
Stay tuned to see it progress!
