Barn at Dusk

I got the subject from another inmate. I changed it to make my own. I learned to paint the sky a wash dark on edges and brighten it as it comes in. I worked on the shadows of the fence and such. I enjoyed this landscape and learned how to paint planks of wood, and stone blocks in buildings. Creating depth in the landscape as well. We have always preferred living in the country both in Florida and in Texas. This landscape reminded me of much of my surroundings in those two places.
