Rural road, limited palette

A couple weeks ago I did a burnt umber monochrome of this road. Today I tried the same scene in a larger sketchbook to try out a limited palette of cobalt blue, yellow ochre, sepia, and brown madder, the last of which I used sparingly. It’s a good palette to convey both a sense of age and a sense of distance because all of the  muted mixes that come from it.
