Lazy Summer Morning

As I mentioned in my last post the scene of the field, rolling hills, and old barn are so beautiful to me. In my last painting I captured the mist rising in the hills and the old barn but thought it would be fun to make some changes. In my first painting the barn appeared to be more in the distance. In this painting the barn is more of a focal point while still capturing the mist rising and the beautiful sky. I also changed up the coloring. This painting, with dimensions of 24″ x 18″ is my largest pastel painting yet. It was fun for a change. Painting big seemed to be freeing.

Even though I captured this scene while going to work, looking at the painting can definitely put me in the mindset of a Lazy Summer Morning.
