Go west

It was raining quite hard when I left to paint today. I momentarily contemplated staying home and painting in the studio, but the pull of the outdoors, of looking at the clouds, of capturing some of the soft spring colours was too strong. When I looked towards the west, there seemed to be a break in the cloud cover, a slight lightening towards the horizon, so I pointed my car in that direction, hoping to find an open field of some sort, maybe with a structure on it. On a road near Hudson, I found what I was looking for. Painted on Arches 140 lb cold pressed paper, 15″ x 11″.

    Just beautiful, Shari. You make it look so effortless, yet you come back with an awesome painting once again! I can’t get enough of that sky-love it!

    The composition is so simple yet effective, the dark cloud just above the barn keeps the eye in the picture beautifully. When you go to Montebello do you want me to give you locations of some stunning barns in fields?

    Barn nice and soft against an interesting sky. I wonder about the darks in the foreground, though. Perhaps a bit distracting? ??
