Fence Post Study

At home today with my daughter, so while she naps I decided to work out this quick study of the fence post from this lovely photo reference.

More or less working out the values and the spontaneity, colors are kind of an afterthought in this for the moment. I'd like to do this much larger.

I went waaay out of comfort zone on this one.

Comments and criticisms are welcome.

Re: Fence Post Study

Works OK, maybe a little more shadow on the post?

A fun and engaging study, nicely done.

Observation: the background and foreground elements have tremendous detail, color, and contrast compared with the post. Thus, the post becomes secondary. A useful find, I would say.

Re: Fence Post Study

I'd love to see more reeds/grass/wheat(?) going through that dark spot in the mid ground, and also darker shading on the post. That said, I love how you spared the minute details in the foreground and background to focus on the midground, and I really like your details on the branches. Your colors are pretty great too, I think you got the idea of the subject across very well.
current Favorite mediums: Watercolor, Dip pens, soft pastels.
