Plein Air– Gorman Farm

Three Cribs
12"x 18", Oil on Canvas

What a delight it was to paint at Gorman Heritage Farm this year. We finally had the weather cooperating (temps in the low 80's and humidity down in the 50's). I did experience some problems in painting this scene though. I located myself in opening of the barn door and was facing North West to see this view. With the bright sun we were lucky to have, it was reflecting off the silver corrugated barn siding just to the right out of view. After completing most of the work on this, I turned my whole setup around so the light fell on the painting and I was looking into the barn. Amazingly, the colors and values worked quite well!
