Ford Pond Barn #23

This old barn is just a few miles from my home. I've often wanted to make a little painting of it .. and finally did.

I often mix watercolor and ink. It is one of my favorite mediums to work with. Painted on Strathmore 140# cold press watercolor paper ...inexpensive paper which is quite durable. Inking was done with my fine and flexible Pelikan fountain pen and Platinum Carbon ink.

I love the character you've captured in the tree, the fence posts, and of course the barn!

I love this one too, but then again...I love all of your paintings! I could see this in a book...

There is a strong feeling of distance, including the peek through the abrn that I like. I love the contrast the organic lines of the tree and the straight archetectual lines in the barn and the way my eye flows through the composition.
