Landscape Color Studies, part 1

I was impressed by Nathan Fowkes' post where he did a sheet of 16 color studies from Edgar Payne paintings. As I am new to painting and color mixing, this seemed like a perfect exercise for me.
I ended up using 2 Frederic Church paintings (top) and 2 John Kensett paintings (bottom).
I will be doing this kind of thing again.

I started this one sometime around Nov. or Dec. 2010 and finally got back to it a week or so ago.
