Drifted Hay

Watercolor on paper, 5 1/2" x 6"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.
The reference for this is a photo I took years ago--loosely interpreted. These buildings no longer exist--today there's a huge gravel pit where they once stood. I'm pleased with how the forms in this design interlock and balance one another.

I'll be away from the easel for a few days, so this will be my last post for awhile. See you soon.

Don, I wrote nice things about your work on my blog...and tagged you for which I do humbly apologize.

I love your cow and barn pieces. They remind me so much of Maine.

Dean Grey said...

I really like this one.

The roof of the barn looks so crisp and sharp.

The thing I love most about this piece though is the use of color.

Lots of cool blues and warm oranges/browns going on. Very nice.

I especially love the color of the barn's roof. Almost a blue-gray (more blue in it than gray).

Keep it up!

Diane, you are most kind--no apologies necessary--thanks!

Hi Jean--thanks a lot. Someday I hope to visit your beautiful state.

I enjoy your blog.

Thanks Dean for your comments. Glad you enjoy the color relationships in this piece.
