1-18-14 Emma Griggs Green Farmhouse

So many farm house where sided in years past with green slate siding that I couldn't help but take notice when I saw this farm house and just had to paint it. I was concerned with getting the density of the green right and repainted it at least once. Over the years it has taken some practice to get the winter sky just right because I am trying to mix several colors all at once on the paper and keeping the horizon a different value than the top of the sky and I feel I have been able to accomplish this on most paintings, yet it is not unusual for me to repaint a winter sky on one out of three paintings. If you would like to purchase this painting please use the 'etsy' link on the right side of the page.
