Colorado Barn - WIP 2

In the interest of maintaining some artistic integrity here, I am posting the WIP 2 of this painting, although I am hardly proud of this stage. It was not until I took a photo of this that I saw the wonkiness (new word) of the barn roof line and the one window. Why can we not see these things in our own paintings IRL that we see in a photo or in others'?! This is yet another example of why we should paint every day instead of just once a week. You lose your skills! While I haven't managed painting every day this week, I have taken two opportunities to work on this one, and will take it to my art group this afternoon and paint for my weekly painting that I always try to accomplish.

I have added the darkest darks and have started adding more darks to the depths of the background. I will next try to correct that roof line of the barn and window. Grrr!

I have been following you for a while. I love what you are doing here! There seems to be always one point in a painting that we hate. I don't see any flaws in this! Nice!

I think you are doing a really good job!

Thanks Wendy, and thanks also for following my blog.

Vicki, thanks for the encouragement and stay tuned for my next WIP, might even be the final one after yesterday's painting session.
