A landscape painting with an arrangement of gray barns set against a rose gray sky

Barns on Shelburne Glebe Road. 8x10, oil on linen panel. 2014

I painted this small landscape with deliberately subdued colors and spent most of my time focused on the way the light wraps around the tops of the trees.  There are a lot of architectural elements in the painting, but the way they are obscured by the foreground trees made them relatively easy to paint.
