Original Creation

White barn in the meadow

mbbrickner 15 Jul 2022

Oil on canvas | 16”x20” | I just finished painting this one en plein air at a park near my house. There’s a cute little farm tucked in the middle of this recreation area.



Cute little farm house! Very nice!

Thank you!

Feels very refreshing both the grass and colors and air in this painting. Were there any shadows from the fence?

Very nice scene!

Thanks, all!

Sunnylady, good question. The sun was pretty high so the shadow was very minimal. However, when I added tall grasses around the posts, I lost some of the shadow I had put down on the first layer. I should probably slightly darken the left side of the grass patches. Thanks for helping my think through this!

No problems at all. I saw a short shadow from the tree on the left side, trees are highlighted as the sun is high, but anyway decided to ask to check about the fence.
