Horse stables - gallery edition

"Horse stables"
65 x 35 cm
Oil on linen canvas

I felt that the pleinair painting I painted from this building, yesterday, was a bit too small in size and I wanted a bit more horizontal space to really show this beautiful old building for you.
I also added some details that i did not include in the first version.
There is also a challenge to not to over work a new versio. Thats why i painted the same way that i painted in the landscape. Please check out the previous post for the work n progress shots.
Colors and the values are also identical to the original sketch.

"October orange"

I was painting today with my friend and mentor Mauri
What an amazing day, we met many great people and chatted a lot about dogs and also about the beautiful finnish autumn!
Incredible colors out there - no painting can match to that, but we did our best.
