The reference photo for this painting was taken by Doug Swinton. He has a whole box of photos that he lets students use. I loved the contrast of dark and light as well as the vertical boards on the barn. One of the ways Doug explains what he is teaching is to paint right on the photograph (light colour on barn front etc.). It was Doug's suggestion to paint the barn boards with thicker paint pushing the brush down. He also helped me with the edging of my trees.
