This little barn seemed to have dropped out of the sky and plopped right in the middle of this field all by its lonesome self.

This is another painting done for a DailyPaintworks challenge. This paticular challenge had to do with Balance. This is my first little piece for that challenge. A couple of objects that I have used and painted many times through my life.

STEP BY STEP

Inital sketch


Turp Lay In


Less turp more color shapes and values adjusting



Colors shapes narrowed down . . . Liquin to thin paint




Straight paint, dry brushing, colors details intensities finalized.



I took these shots as I was doing one of the diapers and I completely forgot to put them on the blog. Its a look at how one of these little guys progresses. Strangely enough if you added 6-8 hours of the same type of widdling away of color and shape you would have one of my finished pieces.

ART 4 DIAPERS (DAILY DIAPER #160) Slice of Summer


To bid on this painting click the diaper below.

I've painted these guys many many times and I am still never not amazed by the sheer intensity of color in one of these bad boys. I never was much of a fan of watermelons until I started getting locally grown organic ones from a small store close to my house. A world of difference in taste. I'm not a huge organic foodie but these have to be bought local/organic there is simply no comparison in taste.
