Dairy Barn

Acrylic on Cardstock

I have a lot of reference photos from this ranch, so I thought I'd see if I could work on the values and color temperatures for this one. The light was changing rapidly while I was there, but this shot captured a lot of those different values. The sky in the back was grey and cloudy, but the sun had suddenly poked through warmly flooding the foreground. It's probably one of those kind of scenes that an instructor might steer you away from, but it really does remind me of the weather that day.

Very very pretty! The colors are great and the angles are so striking. Love the composition.
