Small colour 'plays' of pools/ landscape

I have taken my sketches and played around: some large(65cm x 50cm), some medium (30cm x 40) , and some small (5x7")

Charcoal on paper. 1.
Pencil on paper. sketch 2.

The pictures above are the same picture. The blue picture was done from sketch 2 then  I re-worked it from a small oil study done on site, see below, which was made 3 weeks later. This is how a picture advances and why it is important to keep going back to the site. In the small study I had removed the rocks in the foreground and preferred it this way,  bringing you more into the deep space below. So I changed the foreground of the picture to be the same as the oil sketch below.
