Studio Work - Girders #2

Well, I spent the last few evenings working on the girders painting in oil. I finally got to the point tonight where the surface was very dry and I also was to the point where I didn't feel like working on it anymore! I generally work very fast, and the pace of this one was too drawn out.

I am fairly happy with this generally. I like the composition and my green mixtures of the trees framing the scene are nice true Ohio greens. It is a very unusual subject matter for me but it forced me to paint straight lines which I find very difficult.
Here is a view of the photo, the pastel painting and this oil painting. I still like the 'roughness' of the pastel.
