Sheep Farm, Summer (oil on canvas, 2008)

(Private Collection)
This was done a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to do a painting based on the image in the pastel (see below), but not directly from the pastel. I went back to the location with a big canvas and started the painting, making some changes to the composition, most notably the addition of a shadow in the foreground from a group of trees that was behind me to the right. I estimate that I spent about 40 hours on this over the course of four days.
