"Windrows" Oil Painting

"Windrows"
10 x 20 Oil
SOLD

Completed this new painting last week using a grayer color palette than I normally would.

Windrows are formed when hay is cut and allowed to dry before it is baled.

Midway through the painting
I toned the canvas with burnt sienna (a warm red brown) ---

and allowed it to show through in selective areas.
