ACEO - Fence Posts 3

Today I thought I would like to finish this painting that I started last year while painting on location (see posts on 17 July and 21 October 2016).

Starting with the pine trees in the background, I mixed various greens from Antwerp blue, French ultramarine blue, new gamboge and raw sienna.

Next I mixed various shades of grey with French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna to put the texture onto the fence posts.

Using burnt sienna, I put in two strands of the barbed wire between and onto the fence posts.
