Barn 122 Spring Chicken

Barn 122 Spring Chicken     22x30 watercolor, pencil, oil pastel

This barn painting is an attempt to create variations of color- no surprise here. I wanted to place a cooler, transparent, high intensity green next to a warner, more opaque, grayer green. The greens show gradation from yellow green to green to blue-green. And spice it with complements of red, hint of orange and lavender. Each color has a bright and dull sample and high and low value. Always a hint of more neutral gray is added in contrast to all the bright color.

Yes I like it and thanks Bev for the chicken.
