Another tree surface.  The richness of that burnt sienna is stunning.

Don’t you remember “burnt sienna” from your Crayola box?  I loved those names: burnt umber, red violet, violet red…I recall figuring out that the first term in the two-color names was the adjective, so red violet was a violet, basically, but violet red was a red.  Those were also the days when “flesh” was a sunburned Caucasian.  I’ll have to look at a box of Crayolas and see what the names look like now.

(I never know where my mind will wander when I look at a photo!)
