Frosty morning Allotments

There is not much happening on any allotments at this time of the year, but a recent frosty morning attracted my attention on these. I liked the white roof on the sheds and the quietness of the scene. This is actually quire a large area and there is a lot more to be seen, but I simplified the background and shamelessly removed a green screen from across the foreground, although I included it the small sketchbook version I made at the time. I also used a limited palette of colours, choosing French Ultramarine, Burnt Sienna and Yellow Ochre. I also used a small amount of New Gamboge to find a bit more of a green than the blue and Ochre could give me.
