ACEO - Fence Posts 5

I wanted to finish a painting today so I pulled out this piece that I had started last year (see posts on 26 July and 08 December 2016).

Using various greens of French ultramarine blue, Antwerp blue, aureolin, raw sienna and cadmium yellow I put in the clump of coniferous trees in the field behind the barbed wire fence.

With a mix of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I put in all the grooves on the weathered fence posts.

Using Antwerp blue and aureolin I brushed in some of the moss on the posts.

I used pure burnt sienna for the barbed wire fencing.

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork.
