Mix of Ultramarine and Crimson -
ie. [ML].

Second application:
FIELDS

Apply wash of #4 to the distant field, charge it with [DG] repeat in the next field but instead - charge it from the left with [DT] and from the right with [PG] leaving a strip of untouched original colour below the hedgerow. Apply a wash of [PG] to the next field - charge it from the right with [DT]. The foreground field is a series of horizontal washes of [PG] charged with #3 : #4 and [DT] allow to dry - add detail using #7.
Third application:
TREES & HEDGEROWS

Apply wash of [WG] to hedgerows, charge with #7 : #3 and [PG] missing the fence posts. Apply [DG] to the foliage area of the trees in a radial pattern leaving dry paper to remain as thin branches, charge this, liberally, with [ML] #3 and #7.
Finally add detail ie. fence posts tree trunks and branches, reflections in water and foreground vegetation using a dark colour perhaps [WG] laced with #1.
