Painted this morning at the abandoned Dairy Farm in Mansfield,OH. It is falling into disrepair! More deteriorated than last year. vines growing, weeds growing, etc. It was a beautiful day to paint. I started with a Quinacradone Rose tone then blocked in my darks, Then started mixing greens, dark to light, then the whites, not really white but blue, lavender,green lighted by white, then the brick shadows and lights and lastly the highlights and light leaves. Did the grass and path last. A fun painting, one I have wanted to do since last year.
