Washington St. Barn

This barn was near our outdoor setting yesterday at class. I had to look across a fence or two and a lane but the patchwork face of the barn got my attention. It was made up of old sheets of plywood which I exaggerated. The texture was so varied and the longer you looked, the more you saw.
And paint. I used more paint.
8" x 8"


  1. Another great barn!
    Love the textures in this one.

  2. Oh Helen, this is for sure a favorite for me! You've got a super combination of squares within squares here....and yet the barn stands out and faces the viewer solidly. Nice one!

  3. Love all the patch work and the way you constructed it , great coloring too. Have a nice weekend.

  4. Really a great painting. The photo doesn't do it justice. I love that you can see into the door. The greys are greyt!

  5. this is great! I love the composition and yes---it's nice to see so much paint!
