The Barns in Portsmouth, RI, acrylic 14x18


We painted Plein Air at Judy Chaves' house yesterday in the late light.  We were waiting for the cows to come out, which they did, as we were packing up to go home & cook dinner :(   Apparently the cows (which are dairy cows, but I don't know that that matters) like the grass to nibble, but not these tuft-y weeds, so they grow, while the grass gets nibbled down.  Loved the light on the barn and out building.

This is a nice painting. Too bad you didn't get to see the cows until late!

you're a designer here too! Look how the grass leads the eye into an around the picture.
Nice color harmony too.
