40. Fenceposts on Whinlatter Pass, Cumbria

6" x 6", oil on primed hardboard

Day 2 of my 30 in 30 (posted on Day 28!).  This is another view between the rain showers.  This is painted on hardboard primed with black gesso and left for a few weeks to dry thoroughly.  I roughly indicated the scene in light grey pencil then went straight in with a large brush and some Michael Harding paint.  The wire on the fence posts was done with a couple of palette knives (one diamond shaped and the other rectangular); I also used the little 'diamond' one to scratch in some foreground grasses.
