Barn #7

Barn #7, Acrylic on Crescent Board, 10"x10", $100
Day 7 of the Thirty Day Challenge. I'm still trying to figure out ways to defeat the detail gremlin - that's the little guy that sits on the end of your paintbrush and insists that you put in every little dit and dot.  Today I started with a good, accurate drawing and then proceeded to deliberately paint outside the lines. I then used lines and a few well-placed (I think) brush strokes to define the places I thought edges needed to be.

This old barn, although freshly painted and in good repair, sits in an overgrown field full of weeds.  I found it alongside a dirt road a few towns over one day last summer.
