It's been some time since I last posted, but I have been painting. Between attending plein aire festivals and working on the one we are planning in Watertown, I have been working on this large 30" x 40" painting of an old corral I saw on a farm when attending a quilt festival. I knew I wanted to paint it because I was attracted to the old colors on the boards and to the composition. I now have to put it away and get to a commissioned piece and finish the planning for Paint the Northern Prairie.
The photo for some reason makes the painting look more purple than it really is, but here is a sneak preview. So far I'm liking it.

If you drive out into the country in the Watertown you will come across many possible scenes to paint. These photos were tall taken on the Northern Plains.
the colors should be much like these.
