The Barn on Keys Road

Barn somewhere1

Just around a corner and up a gravel road is this old place not very far from Rustic Knolls Campground outside of Mount Vernon, Ohio.  I took reference photos a year or so ago.  The owners have let the place become really run down, and I didn’t even recognize the place until we’d driven past it a few times.  This was the start of the painting, drawing with a brush in yellow ochre.

Here’s the painting once I was well into it.  Lots of fun blocking in major masses and color.

And here’s the finished piece.  The hardest part of this whole painting?  Trying to get the back end of that horse trailer to look right.  I like the shadows in this one.
