ACEO - Pasture 1 and 2

Today I wanted to complete these two paintings that I had started a while ago (see posts on 07 July 2012, 17 March 2013 and 21 August 2015).

I started with this one first, which is of the north gateway in the field behind the barn.

Over the years the trees on either side of the opening have grown and formed a canopy of leaves and branches; which in each season has a beauty of its own.

My favourite of course is autumn when the maples are in their fall colours of red, orange and yellow.

Pasture 1

For the second one I wanted it to be more like one of the lower fields with trees along the fence line and one or two trees in the pasture but near the edges.

I used greens made of French ultramarine blue, raw sienna, Antwerp blue, new gamboge, alizarin crimson and cobalt blue.

Pasture 2
