Original Creation

Sitting in front of an old barn

Tom0779 21 Sep 2020

I found this idea on YouTube and I thought it is a nice idea to paint a barn from the perspective of a viewer sitting in front of the same. But I thought it would be easier to realize. This strange perspective is very unusual and I am not sure if I made it look 100% right. Else it is line and wash on A4 cold pressed paper.

the perspective is very okay, the viewer is lying down on the lawn in a cozy manner and glancing the building.
The wood colouring and shading is one of the best I have seen, true 'Wayne Coley' style!

And yes, I am a comic strip lover and collector (over 1000 books) as well although I stick to the authors/artist of the 20th century then.

Thanks Voy Kay. I feel very much honored if you compare me with 'Wayne Coley', his paintings are professional ones.
Regarding the Comics, I also prefer those from the 20th Century, those I grew up with :)

Very interesting perspective.
The first look makes it seem like something abstract until your mind realizes what it really is.

@Felix: Yes I thought the same... It is something different and that's what I am continuously searching for.

It's a very interesting composition. You're a master of watercolor.

Thank you Jin, always a pleasure to read your comments!

Another great piece! Do you do the ink work before or after painting?

Tom0779 Multi-Medium-Talent

Thanks Lilikins. The ink is basically done before. I do some details and corrections after the watercolors. If you want to see an example you can find an additional picture at my painting „colorful houses“

Very creative ! And the colours you used for the barn are so real, I have never tried watercolours, but now I think I might try that once

Thanks Madame Mouton. I think you will be able to produce wonderful paintings if you give them a try. I t is a bit a difference but with a bit practice it will work.
