Vermont Farm Step 5

Vermont Farm Step 5
Oil  20" x 20"

At this point I've blocked in the rest of the barns and the trees.  As I said, I needed to see the color masses next to each other to know if they work.  I like the strong contrast between the light and dark of the barn, but still think the silo shadow side needs to be a bit darker.  I didn't get to the two small houses at the far end, or  the top of the far silo, they are still the original value tone.  The trees need another pass with the lights.  I think the light green in the back of the field could use a bit more light.  I'll work on all of that today, then let the piece sit for several days while I look at it and make small changes before I say that it's all done.
