The Starin Farm

Round two of this scene of the Starin Family Farm. I took a little different approach than the first time.

Here are some shots of the progression:


The underpainting in burnt sienna/permanent rose/burnt umber, and the start of designing the clouds.


Designating the colors, allowing the underpainting to show through.


Cloud design complete, working on centering the focus to the house, reshaping the mountains & highlighting the fall leaves.



24x36, oil

Finished -- after toning down the trees, giving the horizon a bit of an evening glow, unifying the colors, highlighting the house & painting rows in the golden field to draw your eye to the focal point -- the house.
