Pennsylvania Farm




This week's DSFDF challenge was a black and white photo of this tranquil rural scene which could be almost anywhere. I just got back at painting this morning and it felt great, as I really miss my time at the easel and of course on the computer doing a little blogging. oil on masonite 8" x 6"

  15. Such subtle colors... you really have a nice way with paint, Vern. SO NICE. This has a both muted and rich feel to it... those bits of pure ultramarine in the background really pop.

  23. I Vern,

    The perspective on this one is really convincing.
    I also find the tones to be quite natural/realistic.
    I might add that I'd prefer it with a shorter foreground before the sylos (sp?).

    Kind regards,

    José
