Here is the final version of the barn painting. It is on a 16 x 20 stretched canvas that had been previously painted on. I was experimenting with a different method of under painting than I am use to. You can see the step in the WIP (Barn Painting).

I used mainly Cobra paints including cobalt blue, pyrrole red, permanent yellow light, titanium white, and sap green. I also used DUO raw siena and W/N burnt umber. I used the Cobra painting medium in progressive layers and the Cobra Glazing medium to make final minor color changes.

Thanks Dayle,

Always fun trying something different.

This one turned out really well, Judy. I like the way you captured the sun hitting the tree and background treeline area, and the foreground more subdued. And I love the sky!

Thanks Alan,

I took another sunset photo around the same time and it was pretty fascinating so I might paint that next. How're the snow drifts going?

Ha, it was a week of melting. The front yard snow is about only 2 feet high now, and the snowbanks are down to 4 ft of dirty, icy stuff. More rain in the forecast, and highs of 9 degrees C / 48F.
Thanks for asking. Smile

I like the way the under painting made it easier to add colors on top and get special effects from the under painting showing through. I'm glad I ventured away from the original instructional video to make it more interesting. I worked on it while participating in the webinar Dale recommended and that definitely made me look more at abstract shapes and three value mapping. I still see areas that could be improved on so this might not be then end of it.

Thanks Dana,

I've made a few minor additions of color to the barn to break up the boring shape and dead looking window and door openings

Judy,
I hope you put up the changes, it's always good to see and helps me to learn along with fun to see what you did. Thank you

Judy
I'm looking forward to seeing the updated version. One comment from me is that the foreground colours are great but there is a degree of uniformity in the lines of the grass and soil between. unless of course it something being cultivated.
It is tremendously cheerful.
thumbs up

That is one of the areas I also wasn't satisfied with. I've made some changes, but I want to look at it a litte more before I post it again. Thanks for the input.

Judy

Vivid colours! Smile I like the way the remaining light of day brightens the tree-line.

I redid the barn painting to add more interest to the entire thing. I always felt that the best part of the painting was the sky so I tried not to block it too much with the tree in the foreground. Now I feel like it is finished. any comments would be appreciated

I think the bare tree is really strong, and helps bring your eye into the painting, and along to the barn and background tree. Nice work!
