It remains 'scaring' to me: worked hard for about 10 distant hills and then at the end put just 1 big tree in front of it, but I did this bravery test (again). I does not have Burnt Umber in my collection, Bob uses it not much, but in this painting a lot, I replaced it with Dark Sienna. On canvasboard 24x30 cm.
Great depth here Jos
Thanks Voy and Matt!
Such a wonderful texture of grass and rocks on the foreground! It feels so real.

Burnt umber is a highly opaque dark brown, so it is great for shadows and trees. Vandyke brown is transparent and has more black in it. It is the darkest brown.
Dark Sienna is a little lighter (more orange) then burnt umber.
Bob didn't use burnt umber very long/much where he switched to dark Sienna instead. Or he made his own brown with 50-50 bright red and Sap green.
