The Road to Neunkirchen, 6x10, watercolor, watercolor pencil, oil pastel

This started out as a watercolor. But I'm never happy with watercolor. So then I finished most of it with watercolor pencil. I was reasonably pleased until I totally messed up the sky. So I fixed that at home later with oil pastel and I am again reasonably pleased. When we moved here, I thought we'd have more snow. It's just an occasional coating of the ground. I made parts of this too green, but I am quite pleased with how I captured the fields, I think I got their essence, more or less.
