Untitled ( Landscape with old barn )

This old barn sits on a neighboring property about a mile from me - I have always found it an interesting old structure and grounds; remnants of hard times -

Painting: Oil on canvas panel, 14 x 18; Palette: Yellow Ochre Pale, Burnt Sienna, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Raw Umber, Cremnitz White -

Comments and suggestions always welcome -

Thank you for viewing - Hud

I like the strong darks and texture in this. Super.

Nice brush work. It feels really "dry". There is a story here.

Sparticus: Thank you - Appreciate your viewing -

Yes, all sort of stories could be told here; many happy tales I'm sure , but the final chapter would be of hardship and shattered dreams - The "Dirty 30s" were ruthless -

This is beautiful and poignant, Hud. It feels a little desolate and deserted, but I like that about it. It's wonderfully moody!

Jenna: Thank you very much - Pleased you visited -

Every time I view this place, it is a scene of sadness; the old structure has lost all its life -

Re: Untitled ( Landscape with old barn )

Wow, Hud, you've accomplished a tremendous piece with this rundown property so sad yet majestic in a sense. Love the old wooden textures plus the old fence leading us into it. Did you cross post it in the Landscapes forum? I know they'd love to see this.

Kay: I thank you for stopping by and your comments - Pleased that you like -

Worked hard on that old fence trying to get it to complement the falling down barn; plus wanted it to lead the viewer into the painting with some interest to it -

Yes, I did post in the Landscape Forum -

Again, thanks for viewing -
