Old Granville Shed
There are still some paintings and sketches I haven't posted that were done a few months back -- this shed is one of them. I find it interesting to see how my approach to these subjects is changing over time, though I'm finding lately that that 'moving forward' is a bit more dificult with all else that's swirling around the busyness.
I remember taking the photo of this shed -- I had to scramble through tangles of undergrowth, vines and a ditch to find an angle that was clear enough to see the shed. The hill it was on posed its own challenge. I remember thinking as I painted this that I had to simplify it so that the shed was the focus and NOT all the tangles. Still, remembering all those snarly vines, I'm wondering today if I should have put more of them in there.
We're in for another 70sF day and another day at the computer and reserach table for me. I hope to get out for an hour to enjoy a bit of the warmth before the rain sets in this weekend.
