Iowa Gray Barn
Working from my old photos, I pieced together these barn board shapes in gray-textured, hand-painted papers against a vivid red sky. I liked the shed extensions on both sides of the barn and used turquoise for the roof — bringing in the complement color of the sky to make it “pop”. I could not resist adding more green for the foreground. The design is most important to me, along with the bright, bold colors of the textured acrylic papers. I cannot achieve this with watercolors, my main medium. I also prefer the square format for these barns, although I’ve done a few in rectangular sizes. My secondary intent is to capture an expressive structure of these disappearing characteristic barns.
