In the Valley - Fall Landscape Oil Painting

In the Valley 6" x 6" oil painting

This is the same barn as my previous post from a different view. I like the layers in the background of the field and trees then another field and row of trees. The colours change when they are further away. The two small sheds near the larger barn also add interest for me.

The Old Barn Landscape Oil Painting

The Old Barn - 6 x 6" oil on cradled panel

Fall colours fascinate me and this barn stood out in this setting because of the neutral colouring in the autumn landscape I couldn't resist painting it.

The foreground seemed to be a challenge since it is green and I tend to mix greens too bright. So I found it hard to tone it down. I'm happy with the final result.

November in the Country - Landscape painting

November in the Country 
6 x 6" Acrylic on Gessoboard


Living in a rural area can be so inspiring. This painting was done along with some others from a series of photographs that I took in the area where I live. As someone described it as "drive off the road beautiful". I find myself stopping to take photographs while I'm going to an appointment or meeting with someone.
This is an old empty and unused barn on a rural road. There was no snow yet so the grasses were soft shades of gold.
