The Five Shape Landscape, Part 2

On The Way In, pastel, 8x10
This week we took the "five-shape" landscape one step further and arranged the composition so that the shapes were in descending sizes, with each shape roughly half the size of the next larger shape. The  scene in our reference photo was already divided up somewhat in that way, but we needed to resize some areas a bit to fit this little composition exercise.

By squinting and combining areas of similar value, we came up with our five shapes...errr...I later noticed I did better than that and actually started with only four initial shapes!

Below are some progression shots...
