A Quick Study of a Field in Shelby County

The spring skies were beautiful over the still empty fields in our area this afternoon.  There were several scattered showers moving through and the sun was behind me, so there was golden light on the trees and the field.  This scene is very typical of the area where I live so this probably explains why I love to paint old barns, trucks, and buildings and why, when I want a change, I go to photos taken elsewhere by friends and websites with photos for artists, like http://www.paintmyphoto.com/.

What a lovely painting - simple and so peaceful. I too love old barns and fields to paint. Take care and God Bless You. Thanks for sharing.

This painting is lovely, Barb! That wonderful wet look one can get with watercolor paint works so well in clouds.

Thanks so much, Nancy. Watercolor does work so well with skies - just one reason why I am in love with watercolor.
