Painting trip to Majorca - Day 3

In the morning I drove to Dunolly. I painted some buildings the last time I was here. It was a bit raining, and I thought not to do painting here this time. 

Then I drove towards Avoca, and the sky started to open up. Near Mount Hooghly, I found this beautiful sheep farm, and set up my easel here. 

Because there's not much happening at front, I decided to do a sky study. It constantly changed, but, I'm reasonably happy with this one. I spent 2 hours.

Then I continued to drive towards Avoca, thinking about having some lunch there. 
However, I found another charming sheep farm near Lower Homebush. Well, forget about lunch, I set up easel here. 

This time, I decided to make foreground a dominant feature. It was very windy, difficult to control my brushes. Also it got very cold. 
As the sun goes down, the light was incredible, and the colour of grass was, how should I say, very luminous. I spent 2 hours.
