In my first blog post (History) I posted this picture of my first ever watercolor painting:
I thought it might be fun to try it again. So, I went up to Park City a few weeks ago and took about 30 pictures of the barn. I only really like two of them (photography is obviously not my thing). My plan right now is to do one small and one large painting of the barn. Unfortunately the flag wasn't up, so it won't be in the new paintings.
I'm pretty happy with the overall painting. I think my favorite parts of this painting are the yellow bush and the silos. I also think the color of the line of trees in the background should be less intense; I should go back and lift some of the color off. I got carried away with the background and left out a couple of trees, like the big yellow one right behind the barn. OOPS! I should look to my reference photo more often, I guess.
