Abstract landscape

I decided to use up the remaining oil paint on the palette by doing an abstract landscape, working from a photograph of a painting I did a few years ago.

I wanted to have a smooth surface, with little texture, as I was looking for a pattern of tone and colour rather than realism.

The Wolds. Oil, 8 x 8 inch on board

I've removed the colour in Photoshop, to check on the tonal quality.  I feel it could have done with a brighter highlight on the lower sky area, and also the light area in the field could have been smaller but lighter. Having said that, I am pleased with the colours and the composition.
