Ashdown Forest again

I’ve started painting Ashdown Forest again. This is the view from Camp Hill, looking north.

Ashdown Forest
Acrylic on canvas, 30 x 30cm

I like the colours in this painting (ultramarine, cadmium yellow, red oxide, and a bit of cobalt in the sky, all over an underpainting in burnt sienna); and I like the perspective of the path leading you to the distant hills. On the other hand, I think the blocks of colour could do with more variety: some softer edges maybe in the distance, and some scruffier bits in the foreground.
