I copied from this sketch in washy burnt sienna on a 9"x7" pc of medium grade watercolor paper, taped to a board.  When I was satisfied that I’d sufficiently built up enough layers of my value pattern in BS, I started adding color using only the pigments Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Red and Cadmium Yellow.

I added a few features from that morning that I’d photographed; the track in the field and the Birdwatcher.
