Back to the "redemption" part of this painting. If you read my last post, you'll know some paintings are more challenging than others. The challenges are sometimes induced by myself and my wanting to "control" the direction of the painting. Then there are paintings, such as this one, that I can't help but jump up and down and pump my fists, all while whispering under my breath "YES!!!". I vowed to keep things simple and loose before attempting this piece, choosing a limited palette and preserving the white of the paper for the barn.
I believe I was successful.
Thanks to all who frequent my blog.
