Found this abandoned grain building on the other side of the railroad tracks from the Coupland Dance Hall. I was drawn to the Black Eyed Susans as a foreground and the view of the building against the sky.
The clouds were impressive on Saturday morning, so I loaded up the gear and the dog in search of a painting spot. I've been meaning to paint this house and silos for some time. The fields were wheat and corn. Looking out at the vast landscape of crops makes one respect the hard work and long hours that go into farming.
I think I'm finished with this painting... sometimes you're never sure. Anyway, this was painted from a photo I took at Red Rock Canyon in Vegas a few weeks a go. I'm thinking it's a little saturated, so I may give it some glazing to push that peak further back. It's looks perfect in direct sunlight, but who hangs a painting outside? Ha!
