New name- reworked painting- I think I've "gone about as far as I can go" with this- (what musical is that line from?) at any rate, watercolor, holbeins, neopastels, on 15'x22" fabriano wc paper. Thanks for looking.

I like this....nice use of varied greens....they set off the complementary red browns of the barn nicely....Steve

This is the best version so far, much better without the trees (which looked too uniform and cotton-y for me). The barn is spectacular, the watercolor trees beautiful, and the additional flowers in the foreground (and lavender/aqua touches) really work.

I think this is a big improvement. I like the ripples on the hillside, leading the eye around the painting and giving more depth.

really like this version. .. the hills seem so alive and vibrant and just draw me in. A nice contrast to the old barn.

Love it! Wonderful contrast between lush field and trees and the rustic old barn. Amazing detail on that barn! I really like the mixed media with the watercolor trees. I can almost feel the breeze pushing tall grasses and flower over in waves!

Much better, I was never fond of the trees...and I like all those greens.

This is so warm and sunshiny. The barn, the trees, and the field seem to just be soaking in the warmth of the sun. I like the watercolor tree line and the rustic look of the barn. Makes me feel the warmth of the sun just looking at it.
