Almost Raining Great Marsh Sketch

Here is the last of the Great Marsh sketches, at least for awhile. I have more sketches to do, but right now I'm looking forward to working more with color.

I've been thinking a lot about color lately and what color choices to make. I rely most on value to create mood, but there's no denying the impact of color, whether used naturally or emotionally.

What are your favorite palette choices? Do you use color realistically or naturally, emotionally, or expressively, or another approach?

I've worked a lot with de-saturated color and black and white, and I'd include it in the emotional category.

Lovely atmosphere you've created in the sketch - it seems the marsh is endless!
