Misty's Barn



This is a painting I did from a photograph taken by one of my adult painters at Riverside Art Center, Misty Steinke..  It is a barn in northwest Ohio.  I was taken by the beautiful clouds in her photo and felt I just had to paint it.

The painting is approximately 8 1/2 x 11 and is painted on 140 lb. hot pressed Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper.

I decided to use this painting for my watercolor class and they did so well with it.  I am so proud of them - they are really good painters!

Thank you so much, Ginny! They say to paint what you know, and I "know" barns!!!
