Painting Farm and Rural Scenes From Across America's Heartland.

work in progress
In this stage I block in the major colors. I really don't look at the objects as barns, trees, or grass but as rectangles, squares, circles, etc. and lay down color with that in mind. In the next stage I develop the actual scene. My style is to keep the water color paint very dry for most of the painting except the sky- the sky drips with excess water until I feel it is right and let it dry.
