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.
Wednesday class was held up in the hills to the east of Petaluma. I chose to paint a little old pump house. How difficult could that be? Lots, let me tell you.
I was working on a 5 inch square which complicated matter immensely.
At any rate, I love the palette. You can tell I have not worked on canvas lately as I had a terrible time getting enough paint built up on the canvas. Sit back in your chair and enjoy the rich colors.
Here is my 30 minute painting.We do it at the end of each class with the thought being that our palette is set, we are tired and must paint quickly. That time limit allows the painting to be so fresh and without effort. Once again I did not get to build up paint on the canvas. Next week I know exactly what to work on from the start.This canvas is 4" by 6".
