Barn at Beaver Creek

October 9, 2018

Barn at Beaver Creek – Watercolor on Arches 140# CP – 9″ x 12″

Another play with watercolors. Used artist prerogative on this. This structure used to be a barn. Several years ago it was converted to a ceramics workshop and display room on the ground level and a home on the upper level. The front has a lot of windows. The barn has been allowed to age to dark brownish gray patina. Rather than paint this painting in its current state, I wanted this structure to look barn-ish.

I could see the indications of the former sliding door entrance to the barn and the opening for the hay loft. I also felt that changing the color to something more indicative of a barn would help.

Not sure that the owner was very excited with my choices, but I am.
