Morning at Spring Hill Farm

Morning at Spring Hill Farm; Oil on Canvas 18″ x 24″

I “started” this work late last summer. It has been on display, but I was not satisfied with it. I finally figured out what bothered me. The feeling of light on the barn was not as pronounced as it could be. I recalled that when creating the plein air piece during the Fields Project, the sunlight had been visible on the side of the barn for a few moments before clouds rolled in.

Since this work had not yet sold, I figured it was okay to make a couple changes to pump it up. After adding some Cadmium Red Light to the barn and a few adjustments to the foliage, it was finished. Actually worked as a good warm up before my day of painting.
