Snowed In Barn

Another layer of paint on the 'Snowed In Barn' painting I have been working on. I added another layer to the sky smoothing some of the sharp edges in colour. I painted the snow on the barn roof, I painted the far left tree for more snow on the branches, and I added another layer of paint on the sides of the barn. It seems to be coming along very nicely.

Sierras 17 April 1984

This is a sketch in CA probably somewhere in the Sierras. I usually sketched on site with the idea that I would eventually do an oil painting of the area.....

Finding a photo that inspires and calls to a person to paint allows that person to be free to interpret the scene with their own feelings.
