The Old Mill

Winterknight 11 Jan 2021

My son picked this one for me to do. Haven't followed Bob doing a building before, so might as well make it a big one! I had to redo the shed because the perspective was quite off the first attempt. It really helps to step back every so often. I don't care for how the gable came out, but it works I guess.

Great painting! This is challenging one due to perspective and circle that becomes an oval in perspective. Water is great! Mill looks awesome and main focal point here!

This one is on my short list and it needs to wait while I'm confident enough to take it on.

Bravo with that mill, it is outstanding with all the right accents on and to it!

@Voy Kay, Be sure to have plenty of brown paint. Bob started with lots of Van Dyke Brown on his pallet for a reason. I added more to my pile several times before I was done.
