Barns

I think I'm going to switch my subject matter to abstracts! I've gotten so many comments and emails about my last post...wowie zowie. Thanks everyone! So to completely flip the switch..here's a typical Vermont scene I did during the Mel workshop. Tomorrow I'll post the value study I did prior to painting. Yes there is "value" to doing a value study..I'm a believer...now...

Love the barn, Annelein.

This is very nice. I like all of the colours you have used in the white. :0)

I like your abstract piece below a lot - but these barns and old scenes tug at my heart strings - and you do them SO well. I am very interested to see the value study.

We want more abstracts, but we want it all -- the landscapes, the roosters, the florals, etc. You amaze with your versatility.

Don't you love Mel. I took workshops from him in San Miquel de Allende, Mexico; Cape Porpoise, ME; and Block Island, RI. I made a dear friend with another person at Cape Porpoise and we do an art vacation every year now.

I'm looking forward to the value study. More and more I'm finding it is very helpful to pay attention to the values of the subject for a successful painting. The barns are very well done.
