Neighboring barn in Fall

15x11 watercolors

I finally got a barn I like. I had taken several pictures . The scene was complicated, but I worked it out in a drawing first. I just intuitively painted the colors without regard to the photo.Am pleased with results


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog too! I love the softness in these leaf paintings. It's funny, I was just out and grabbed a few leaves off a tree for inspiration. I think I'm going to try to do some sort of mixed media with them. I'm hoping if I glue them on and encase them in clear gloss medium they'll keep their color.

  2. No one else paints these barns like you do!
    Your intuitive palette certainly fits the season! It's lovely!

  3. Thank you so much for your comments Rachel and Rosemary. After trying sooooo hard to paint this particular barn, am glad it turned out. Thanks for visiting my blog, too. Silvia
