On the first step I sketch in the drawing. Then I started with the sky. When that step was down I laid in the background trees, and the background. I made sure I put in the middle ground trees, and put in the dark shadow under the bridge. I did try to keep in mind to work all over the canvas, adding a little color here and there. I didn't want to get stuck on just one spot.
