12-17-11 "The Red Barn"

This lone shed and silo are all that remain of what was probably an active farm, crops, cows, house, and children running around. It is the middle of winter and I decided to paint a summer scene. Around 6:30 last night I started with a blank sheet of 140 lb. water color paper and by 8:30 it was finished and I placed it behind a matte board to view it for a while. In the morning I adjusted the shading of the tractor lane by darkening the left side to give it some depth. If you would like to purchase it please use the Etsy sight on the right of the blog page.
