More Hay Bales

This time the sun was really in my face.  I was happy with the way the light produced the glow around the edge of the hay bales.  Planning from the beginning I tried not to use white in the foreground shadow, to keep it thin.  I used various browns thinned way down with Liquin.  OK,  I eventually I added a bit of white when mixing some cool lavenders and grays.  This was a bright afternoon for painting -  too much light everywhere.  The far hills were high in value.  I had to keep the sky light as hell to get some contrast.

The challenge

I had to use my deluxe light blocker to keep the light off my palette
