For a sunny day in the second half of April, it was cold and windy. I went back to the old barns and painted this view quickly. Gray, green and blue. This view shows the edge of one barn, and the last add-on to a long barn, composed of several add-ons, all hanging on for dear life. There's another structure below the horizon. They all stand there like a still life that's been around for a long time.
One of the things I learned today is that, if you know where you are going to paint, it's beneficial to have your palette prepared ahead of time. Then all you need do is paint. I carry my palette in the same flat container for both studio and outside painting, so I can set it up before I leave. It just never occurred to me how good an idea that is.
