Final one. (and maybe a real update later this week).
Normally burnt umber looks natural in mud, just a sort of clay that happens to be in the ground. This time, though, it looks out of place and ominous. Rather than compliment the green foliage, the mud contrasts to the point of disgust. It weaves a path of destruction around the buildings and seems to want to swallow this little world whole.
Even more yuck.
