For this first one I was trying an experiment. Think of this one as a benchmark. I had sketched it a few times to block out a rough composition but I wanted to paint it raw, loose and from memory. With the trees, I got so into the pattern of how to paint them that I forgot what it was like to see them for the first time. This is a mess but I think there are some good things here that I will need later.

For this next set of paintings I’m going to be doing a few of the same barn that was featured in No. 100 from last year. It’s right by our house and I’ve been able to see it at all different times of day, grab some photos, etc.
