Benwick Barn Sketches
I sketched these little thumbnails while waiting outside the school for Harry last week.
The barns were to my left, a view between two houses, and the landscape directly infront of me. I mixed the two scenes together with some Neocolor and then played around with the barn composition in ink.
I then took the sketches home and created a painting from them back in the studio
...How cool is that!
My own composition, my own references, bold colour and big brushes! I had so much fun, it felt so good to be 'creating' as opposed to copying, dusting off the cobwebs of my imagination.
I will post the painting later today.
