White Barn-Field Study, oil on linen, 9"x12"
Wednesday, December 29, 2010
This is a field study, a.k.a. plein air painting I did a couple weeks ago in the late afternoon. I have painted this barn a few times before (always in a small size) but the lighting was gorgeous on this particular evening, better than any of the other times I've painted it. I plan to turn this into a large studio painting-15"x30". This small study represents about and hour and thirty minutes of work.

It has been some time since I last posted. Things have been a little hectic and I've been working on commissions for Christmas. This is the first stage of a painting I'm currently working on. This has a bit of a Christmas theme to it since it shows a donkey, which are usually portrayed in Nativity scenes, not to mention that Christ rode a donkey into Jerusalem before
the Passover. This image represents about and hour and a half of work.
