Barn at Sunset

Hey Everybody,

I've been working on this painting for about a week off and on. Mostly off. Oil on canvas, 6"x8". I'm working from a couple different photos I've taken and my imagination. We recently started working 4 then hour days again,so I hope to get out on Fridays and do a little plain air. If it will dry up, farmers will be cutting hay soon. Anyway, I hope you like my painting.


CnC is welcomed. Thanks for looking!
Donald

Re: Barn at Sunset

Love your use of color in this - that warm yellowish really sets off the painting

A lovely and cozy farm scene with a great color palette. Hay is already baled around here before the heavy rains hit.

Re: Barn at Sunset

Jenna, thank you for your kind words. I really appreciate them.

Kay, thank you! They mowed and baled some alfalfa, I got one pic, was planning a plein air event but the next day the bales had vanished. So I'll have to paint it from the photo.
