After taking a break from painting over the Easter weekend, I got back to painting this morning. I worked from a photo I took in West Virginia last October and concentrated on the value pattern - I thought the shadows were interesting in this one. Another building is casting a deep shadow on this structure. The building was originally a log structure and I changed it to frame for greater contrast in the cast shadows. This painting is 9" x 11" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.
