Silo at Little Fiddler's Green. 5x7 oil on linen. 2013
Here's another small sketch I did on location, this one at Little Fiddler's Green. It's less finished than the one shown in the previous post.
More than anything else I was trying to capture the color of the shadow areas of the barn and silo. In photographs I took the same day those areas look almost black and not at all as they appear in real life - warm and cool grays filled with reflected light.
The tree was painted with thick paint using a palette knife.
