Day 12 of the 30 Day Challenge. There's a kernel of an idea here. I was interested in how to use color to create the feel of a landscape and then let the barns nestle into the folds of that landscape. I think the concept works but this implementation of it isn't very strong. So I'm going to have to revisit the idea another day. I think the landscape elements could be spaced better for a better rhythm and division of space, and I think I can find a better way to do the barn to make it feel more like a part of the whole. Consequently this painting is not for sale.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
