Rust Barn




Acrylic on Canvas Board

OK, I admit it. I DO like photographing old barns. I just don't like painting 'em all that much. This one had been kicking around in the "pics to paint" folder for a long time, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. It's just that my mind sees it as simple shapes, but once I get going I start to obsess about all the little shapes and shadows. At least the sky and distant hills are nice and soft.
