Old Barn

Another try at "the" barn. I have a vision of how I should be painting
these scenes but am not there yet. Can't seem yet to break out of my own
boundaries. I did enjoy working on this however: no second-guessing
or making it hard or getting in my own way. One good thing is that while
painting, I was most concerned with color in light and color in shadow.
(Yay me.) (This image, too, on blogger is so contrasty with exaggerated
darks compared to the same image in photoshop. ??? )

Little Silo in the Woods

I really enjoy painting buildings and am trying to be more conscious
of integrating their surroundings instead of painting a "portrait" of them.

When I compare this uploaded image on blogger to the image in
Photoshop, it looks coarser or contrast-ier than the Photoshop image.
Does anyone else notice differences in their uploaded pictures?

Red Barn

I had intended to paint this barn differently—more amorphous
and atmospheric, but I am finding it easier to modify what I see and
and not be so tied to an actual scene.

Old Brewery

Trying to be more conscious of light and shadow, color and value
and work towards an airier, less solid effect.
