After the fire

Hill End farm. The barn is a skeleton after the fire. Most of the fields are brown now that the harvest has been collected.

This is great!!!

I love the sky,the shadows on the underside of the clouds and the texture in the field.

Again great painting!

How did you create the texture?

Thanks genine. I used some mask on the field before painting the mid-tones. Then after removing the mask I painted over the white with a light colour and then added some strokes of dark
