Open Field 1 - A Work in Progress

This is another of the small paintings that I started last year by using the various blues from my palette and painting in skies (see post on 28 October 2012). I pulled this one out which was called Blue Sky G and decided it looked a lot like one of the fields behind the barn.

I started by sketching in by twin pines that are on the fence line of the back field before the sugar bush.

Next I put in the middle field fence line with the various trees at the edge of the field. I indicated some of the grasses that grew along the edge of the field by the rock piles.

I was just getting my paints out to start work on this painting when I had unexpected company arrive, so I will post this piece at a later date once it is completed.
