More Progress!

Continued progress on the painting I started earlier. I also resurrected an old barn sketch and added some surrounding scenery to create the start of a second painting. One of these will hopefully make an appearance at the Women's Club Show! 

 Here's a shot of the second painting. Of course a barn!  Just the first wash of color...

Finally!  I didn't realize that it had been so long since my last post!  Wow....I've got to get back on the ball.  Here is my latest painting.  I spent a lot of time on extra detail for this painting and I'm thrilled with the way it turned out.

The picture to the left is the rough (and quick!) pencil sketch I did to see how the arrangement would work as well as a rough idea of how I wanted to show the way the shadows were going to fall.  I stayed fairly close to my original pencil sketch but deviated a little bit (ok, quite a bit) with the exact angle of the building.

Below is the finished painting.  I may make a few small adjustments here or there or add a few minor details if I feel they are needed.  As of right now I am happy with the way everything looks.  What am I painting next?  I have no idea but I have a few boards with stretched paper on them already!  It feels good to get back to my watercolor painting again!  I'll post more sketches and paintings as I go....
