Here are some steps taken to get to the final painting:
There is an orange to grey gradient underneath the background textures to give it the colour.Orange goes nice with blue but a light blue for sky would have probably worked also. I do play around with different colours before deciding on the best. A trick when playing with colour huw/saturation etc is to look at the painting in the corner of your eye so it is blurry and you can see colours without worrying about the details in the painting...works for me anyway :)
And there you go, signed on the small rock and onto the next painting.
