Barn #28

Barn #28, Acrylic on Crescent Board, 30"x30", NFS
I'm still working on night scenes although this may be the last for a little while.  I've put a considerable amount of time into this one trying to get the mood and the level of detail right.  This is the largest painting I have done in quite some time - 30"x30", so I had the additional problems of scale to deal with. I'm also not quite sure it is finished - I will have to think about it for a few days.

This painting is not for sale for now but I may have other paintings you would like.  Click here to see the entire collection of barns (and other neat stuff) on my web site.

Artist's Note:  Cameras hate the true darks in a painting.  The darks in the lower right corner are made up of a mix of browns, blues, oranges and reds that are actually quite lively in person. Also, the deepest blues in the sky are a bit less purple than it appears here.
