The next stage of the painting requires some planning and elbow grease. I determine where to place the building, draw it in with pencil, and begin to scrub off the paint that is in the sky area. This leaves a shadow of the building in the paint that is already laid down but greatly helps when painting in the red tones of the barn. I don't need extra blue pigment trying to change the color of the new next layer of red paint that will go down. I let this stage dry for a day or so then this weekend I'll begin the barns.
