ACEO - Fence Posts 6

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

Making various greens from French ultramarine blue, Antwerp blue, raw sienna, new gamboge and aureolin I painted in the coniferous trees in behind the fence posts.

With a dark of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I put in the cracks and fissures on the weathered cedar posts.

I put a little of the bright green on the posts for the moss.

Lastly, using burnt sienna I ran the barbed wire between and across the fence posts.

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork.
