ACEO - Feeding Time I

It is another bright and sunny day, although the temperatures were below normal for the season.

Today I brought a number of smaller paintings to work on including this one that was originally called Grey Sky I (see post on 18 July 2013).

I lightly sketched in a barn, a couple of horses a fence line and some trees.

I started on the barn first and with it being a cloudy day I thought having the lights on in the barn and it being feeding time was appropriate.

I put in the trees and painted in the horses. I ran the fence line and then added the grasses and growies.

Lastly I added a small figure in the doorway of the barn calling the horses in for the evening.
