Turnpike road, get the lead out!

87  F  humid, partly sunny.

Today, my day seemed to slip through my fingers, but I was able to get down the rd.and paint one of my favorite barns, it's small down there, like the Kounzil building in Constance.

Set up as you know, is everything with me

I loved the pattern of the trees against the sky and the road.

I got some flake white it's got lead in it, and I liked it.

 Strong darks, I like them too.

How much detail? you don't need much.

The telephone pole was an important feature.

#395, Turnpike Rd.


9 x 12

I had to stand back to get the right size on the panel. I had painted this place before, only I was closer to the barn.

My scene.

This was Wednesday, early evening.

The sun was going down quickly. I wasn't looking into it.

This seems to happen a lot, It's getting dark out, so I can't see the paint and how not dark it is.
