Fenceline 1 - A Work in Progress

Many of the working farms in the area still have either snake fence or page wire fences with cedar posts.

Some of the larger horse farms are putting in the post and rail fences which are beautiful, but require a fair amount of maintenance.

I have put the sky in using cobalt blue and left the white of the paper for the cedar posts with a few of the grain lines running down the length of the posts.

Using various combinations of French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, raw sienna and cadmium yellow I painted in the grasses of the field in front of the cedar posts.

I used burnt sienna to indicate where the page wire fence will go onto the cedar posts.

This painting will be posted at a later date once it has been completed.
