ACEO - Fence Posts 2

Today I wanted to finish this painting that I had started a couple of years ago (see posts on 17 July and 21 October 2016). 

I started by using various greens made of Antwerp blue, French ultramarine blue, raw sienna and new gamboge to paint in the background trees and bushes.

Next I started on the fence posts; using various shades of grey made of various mixes of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna to put in the various cracks, knots and crevices in the weathered wood.

With burnt sienna I ran the barbed wire between the fence posts.
