Companion Piece progress

Companion Piece to Autumn Fence

The companion piece to Autumn Fence is blocked in with the oil paint ... now I get to develop it with detail and texture. This will be the fun part! 

As an aside - I am so pleased that studying color theory, and now teaching it to several of my art students, has given me the ability to do so well in matching the colors I mixed and used in the original painting. The hard work of trying to understand complementary colors, analogous colors, mixing of transparent, translucent, opaque paint, and so much more must be at work in my brain as I paint!

I'll post more as this progresses. :-)
