This piece is also a "W P P" piece. Here, I had to knock back the colors. What started as a deliberate attempt to create the most local color I could ended up being pretty obnoxious. I didn't like how lame it looked. So, I knocked it back with some variation.
Once I had the ground plane and sky where I wanted it, I almost literally dotted those red things on there in a matter of minutes, without much thought. I like the way this one turned out. That crack is nice. I also like the quality of clouds and the richness of the sky, in general. You won't see me using that loud blue too often. I usually go for a softer approach.
