Painting in process acrylic on linen

I toned the canvas last night (middle) and then used white charcoal pencil to sketch in the basic shapes (after dusk so I wouldn't have to squint to see the basic shapes) This AM I started the fence and rocks. Now ready to really go.

The rosebush and redwood tree

Starting an open air painting (or at least open door-it was raining for several days). I'm using a lot of medium so it's pretty shiny at this point.
