Country Lane

This is 11 x 15 and was done from a reference photo I had taken upstate near Monroe, NY. I've been working on it for a while, and trying to decide if it needed anything else. Yesterday I darkened the trees to the left of the silo, and I think I'm finally content.

This is so gorgeous Joan. I love the depth and all the shadows, especially the shadow of the small trees on left of the silo. Bravo !!!!

Joan said...

Lin - Thank you! I am really happy with this one and just have to make a few shadow corrections.

Ai - Thanks! I had these great barn photos that I took upstate and I knew I had to paint this.

My Goodness! I'd be content too, Joan if it were mine. Lovely composition and such a delicate touch throughout. Beautiful painting.

Joan said...

Robyn - Thand you so much. I've been enjoying doing some barns recently.

Mickey - Thanks. I'm SO GLAD we stopped to take photos that day!
