Mindanao palayan - almost ready for planting rice

Soft pastels on rough watercolor paper. 21 1/2" x 14" (54cm x 36cn) From one of my own photos of some rice fields in Mindanao, taken just before the planting season. Started some time in 2009 (September, I think?) Finished in June 2010!! This painting could have been done in a couple of days. (I made a rough outline in pastel and went over this with a water wash in order to tone the background - so I had to wait a day for that to dry... Otherwise I could have finished this in a few hours...) It took me about 9 months!!! I dunno... I just couldn't seem to find the time for painting. And when I did have the time, I couldn't get in the mood.

WELL THIS IS VERY BEAUTIFUL, VICTOR. THE MOUNTAINS, TREES AND FOLIAGE ARE PERFECT AND REMIND ME A LOT OF PANAMA.
