|© Robin Edmundson, 'Linton Barn', watercolor, 18 x 24 inches.|
We came upon this barn while we were out birding near Goose Pond, south of Linton. I was inspired by the many contrasts:
- angles & curves
- light & dark
- blue & gold
- lines & space
I decided to emphasize those contrasts, so I did a couple of drafts to test out colors and composition and got some great feedback from my critique group. [I can't tell you how important it is to get feedback on your work!] Then I dove in. I'm especially happy with all of the textures. I'll be submitting this one to this year's Hoosier Salon. Fingers crossed it will be selected for the show.
