Demo at North River Festival, 6x8

SOLD
This painting of the Photography Exhibit Barn at North River was the demo I worked on on Sunday afternoon.  It was a beautiful day - the actual painting is brighter on the grass and on the tent top.  There's some really fine work at this exhibit.  The whole view, almost, for me, was in shadow, so that in itself was a challenge.  But I just kept plugging away, liking the way the orange underpainting was peeking though.  Thanks for those who visited, and who picked up the older Daily Paintings in the Barn...

  1. This is stunning; I'm not surprised that it sold right away. I love the way you treated both the sunlight and the shadows. You turned the challenge into a real success.

  4. Kelley, gorgeous, you can really see that the building was in the shade, with the light on the left side and the touches of light on the trees behind! I love this! Also the orange ground peeking through is wonderful!

  7. The atmosphere in both of these is so great. Love the way you used a dark, but still very clean, value to indicate the shadows on the porch. That little pop of red is such a great eye-catcher. Great job on those sunlit trees too.

    Congrats on the sale! :)
