This barn reminded me of a little town my grandparents used to live in in OR. Not unusual to find a barn here and there in the midst of the town. Clearly showing that the "homesteads" were eventually encompassed with houses as the towns grew. Most people maintained the barns well enough to be used for storage or garages.
The sky, trees and foreground were done with watercolor and then the barn and shadows were done with Derwent's tinted charcoals, which are watersoluble. I drew and filled in the barn with the carcoals, gently blended with a Q-tip and then applied water for further blending. Colors of charcoal used were glowing embers, mountain blue, ocean deep, burnt earth, and dark.

Brenda, your work is lovely! I see you ahve been using the oils. I love the look of oils. In my opinion there is no richer media than the oils. I mostly use watercolor and colored pencil along with a few pastels, but long for the oils. I am in Santa Maria Ca so have a problem with the oils drying as we get so much fog from the ocean here. Of course where you are that isn't a problem. I may give it a go again though.

enjoy seeing your work.
