Yesterday morning I scouted the location with the 8x10 art stix drawing, and this morning I went back to paint the 9x12 oil on panel of the barn below a slope facing the Taconics in the background. This location is above Stratton Road, which is out of sight. The sketch was done from a point further away, but I decided to get closer for the painting. Not sure why. Maybe I liked the tree going over the edge of the mountain. But I also like the tree below the mountain edge, so I may do this one again sometime. I went out again this afternoon, but will post the resulting painting tomorrow when it's supposed to rain.
