Watercolor 11" x 15" Mats to 16" x 20"
The painting above, Sam's Barn, is typical of barns found in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Eastern United States. The season in this painting is early summer with wild flowers blooming in the foreground and bright green foliage on the trees.
This barn is another example of a flat tin roof using the technique I discussed in my last blog. This is a good example of the same type of roof only with different colors more suitable for an old barn. I used additional burnt sienna and ultramarine on this barn roof than on my cabin roof.
A fan brush was used to add the tall grasses in the foreground. I have found a fan brush to be quite versatile and can be used for many applications from grasses to fur. If you have not tried a fan brush yet, I would recommend giving one a try.
