underpainting / tobacco barn

pix for blog 220

I never wanted to paint a barn before, because I’ve seen a million barn paintings and they’re all boring.  My first sketch was too large on the paper and I didn’t like it. Then I decided not to make a “barn” painting. Instead, I did a landscape of fields and trees with a small barn in it. Then I enjoyed working on it.
