Raefield Farm Rd.

44  F  Windy! cold! mostly cloudy with some bright sun too!
I wanted more red today, I found it, but it wasn't bright, and the light conditions were just wild

This is a majestic farm scene, with back light, large and small elements. As you can see not a lot of contrast.

Red is the trickiest color! it's hard to get it light without getting pink.














The wind was silly today, I shed a layer and got cold, the sun came out, and changed everything!













OK















The clouds parted a bit and changed it up!














The roof! the roof! kept changing, what to do? I wish I knew.














Getting there.















The foreground never got it, and I didn't get any cows in there, but not bad.













The section I took was a deliberate decision about the design of the painting, I didn't want the whole barn, nor did I want the tops of the silos,












This is where my viewing position was, about 3 feet away, more than usual, and I liked that.













Looking up Raefield Farm Rd, (south).















My set up. This is as easy as it gets!
