Barn #18

Barn #18, Acrylic on Crescent Board, 10"x10", $150
Day 21 of the 30 Day Challenge.  With today's painting I am revisiting a technique I experimented with when I did the sunflower series during the September Thirty Day Challenge.  I apply paint with a brush using primarily criss-cross strokes creating a kind of hashed texture.  This technique allows multiple layers and variations of color to show and visually blend to create a lively feeling.  For unity I put some of the green in the sky and some of the barn colors in the grasses below.  I think this painting has kind of a wild, free feel to it.
