Fine line between the realistic and the abstract

I used a subject of a distant hill to experiment with colors, technique and style. I really wanted to stick to using just the pure pigments. No layering; not too much mixing either.

I did use a lot of pure pigment for sure. The first attempt was more of an abstract while the next one became more of realistic subject. I did make use of the layering technique in the second one. I guess, you can’t get away from its usefulness and you can’t get away from your old habit as well!
