Creative Tuedays....

 Watercolor / Pen

 Wow its been so long sense I took part in "Creative Tuesday". I love old barns and enjoyed working on this watercolor / pen sketch. If it looks kind of familiar it should. Not having any photo reference of my own to use, I went to my library and pulled out one of my favorite books "Wolf Kahns's America" by John Updike to use as my inspiration.
Of course it can't compare to Kahn's oil painting but it was fun trying to match his colors and after looking at the photograph I realized my barn is rather boxy and I didn't have enough reference to capture the foreground grasses with my pen work..
