Re: An Early Nineteenth Century Barn

Many old barns around here too. Sad to see them fall into ruins. The steeple on the top of this one is quite unique. I like the colors and how you worked out the snow!

A lovely old barn Sylvia. The photo looks a little blurred?

Re: An Early Nineteenth Century Barn

That is a cold, gray, drab day. Glad I'm not there. Well done, you gave me the shivers even in my 75' afternoon!

A beautiful, architectural work - great implementation!
(Perhaps the shadows should be emphasized or added!)

Re: An Early Nineteenth Century Barn

As Bob says, that looks cold enough to freeze one’s extremities!
Well painted Sylvia. Perhaps little shadow because of gray day and lack of light but I wonder if the snow could have a track or two and be a bit rutted with some blues and purples to give foreground interest?

Re: An Early Nineteenth Century Barn

Thanks for the comments and suggestions about this old barn painting.

I tried to put them into effect as you can see above and compare the two versions.

On now to painting a white-throated sparrow or finch, I'm not sure which it is.

Beautiful winter barn scene, Sylvia! It's too bad it's no longer standing.
