Three farmers taking a tea break in the west of Ireland.

I posted this painting on my page at the Daily Paint Works site. The farmers were sitting outside a cattle mart, and despite it being late August, the weather was cold and wet. So I am sure the hot drink was more than welcome. I had a bit of difficulty getting the tones right,  as the colour of the clothing of the three men was similar. I hope to do another version of this painting, as I quite like the composition. Oil on linen panel 6x8 ins.
