For a quick sketch, choose a scene with just a few simple shapes. That way, you can limit your color palette. For this sketch, I use soft blue for sky, the white of the clouds is from the paper.
A wash of Oxide Green was use to convey the shape of the meadow & trees in the distance. Naples Yellow to highlight the honeysuckle in the foreground. A thin wash of Ultra violet for the water. By mixing my existing green & purple, it gives me a deep green for the shadows.
