You see the original hash mark lines from the original wallpaper.
The added colors: Some Black Paint Pen from Sharpie, Gold Paint Pen, Gold Paint Crayon, Sherwin Williams Wet Concrete (one of my absolute favorite colors), other Sherwin Williams whites, off whites Red Harvest, and of course the great greens from the Dick Blick Acrylic collection.

Enjoy the whole, explore the crops as you see the intricacies of the design.
