Lightly draw the most important lines with a pencil. Thin the paint with water, then paint over the lines using a thin brush. Use yellow ochre and a mixture of yellow ochre and a little primary cyan.
Begin colouring the sky. Start with the horizon using titanium white. As you go up increasingly add a little more primary cyan. When you get to the top use only primary cyan. Ensure the colours flow from one colour into the next by lightly brushing over them with a moist brush.
Paint the bales of hay and mountain using yellow ochre. Paint mountains and trees with a mixture of permanent green dark and primary cyan or primary yellow. Make bright green by mixing primary cyan with primary yellow. The meadow is a mixture of various shades of green, primary yellow and yellow ochre. Create depth by making a thicker brush stroke in the foreground.
Accentuate the bales of hay using titanium white, yellow ochre and burnt umber. For the tree trunks and the shadows of the bales of hay use burnt umber. Colour the path yellow ochre, titanium white and a tiny amount of primary cyan. With the tip of the brush lightly touch the canvas here and
there to create some flowers using naphthol red medium and primary yellow.
