Winter Farm

Here's the final painting. 6" x 6" oil. I added some extra trees in the background behind the barn in the right. It needed some contrast. The barn roof was pretty much the same value as the sky. A l lot of fun to do.

Here's a pic I took of it in mid-stage. Still very loose. I'm trying to get the correct value of the roof on the right. Ugg. Very subtle, but still not correct. Also, I'm adding diff values to the trees to show depth.

Winter Farm (The beginning)

Here's the beginning of a new oil painting. I know we are still in fall, but I can feel winter right around the corner. I always like to start off loose and then keep tightening as I go along. Thought I would share. Look for more stages of this painting soon.
