A Welsh Farmhouse

#14 A Welsh Farmhouse, oil on board, 12x10"
Another trip to Anglesey. I painted the view away from the sea this time, looking out across the fields towards a nearby farm.  I started off by painting the composition in burnt umber and then began putting in the darker tones of the hedges.  The sun was setting very quickly behind me so the colours changed dramatically and by the end the fields and my painting were bathed in a warm orange glow. 

The half way stage
The field next to me had quite a few horses in it and this beautiful old stallion kept me company the whole time I was out!
