Most of my painting this summer has been outside. It's a tricky process. This is the latest and I'm keen to hear any feedback.

Very nice Richard. And since asked, you know I think those two tall trees with the sky showing through the branches should be placed in and the background with more black-green shading needs to be done on that left side as you are looking at the painting. My feeling is that by doing this you could create eye movement as the viewer looks first at the red farm equipment then eye movement drift left into the trees then right to the top of the shed then back to the machine. I think I would also define the radiator a little more with some sharp outlines and put just a hint more red in the trailer tongue to make it the real focal point. I think these changes would bring more "life" into you painting.
