Linton Barn

© 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.


  1. Robin, I love all of the texture in the foreground—bravo!

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Annie! I had a lot of fun with spatter in the foreground. I'm learning that's a good place to really play with color.

  2. Robin just happened onto your blog and beautiful art. Took time to visit several of your posts. Your work is truly lovely. Will be back to visit again soon. Have a great week.

    1. Debbie! I'm so happy you're here. So glad you found the blog and chimed in. Looking forward to getting to know you better!
