This is another of the paintings from the recent Littleton, CO. Paint-Out. The afternoon was very hot and I was looking for a cool spot along the river. This barn was hidden a bit behind a hill, but visible from a parking lot. And, luckily for me there was a tree that provided enough shade for me and it was right next to the parking lot. How easy was that for a hot day!
I have to admit that I changed the barn colors from a dreary, faded tannish to a much brighter, nicer color. I find cool spring greens, which you see here, a bit harder to mix and paint than beautiful, warm fall greens. They're a bit bolder, brighter and sometimes seem too bright. But, they've been dormant all winter and want to get out and express themselves!
