ACEO - Fence Posts 4

I wanted to finish a painting today and decided to work on this piece that I had started last year (see posts on 26 July and 21 October 2016).

I started by putting in the background trees with various mixtures of Antwerp blue, French ultramarine blue aureolin, new gamboge and raw sienna.

Next I mixed various greys using French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna for the texture on the old cedar posts.

Lastly, with pure burnt sienna I painted the strands of barbed wire in between and on the fence posts.
