Another quick study

Worked on another barn painting today, and whipped this out after to use up the leftover paint. Not bad. Kinda random. I might go back once everything has dried.  This was all gobbed on there so it might be a few weeks.  Sorry for the glare bouncing off the paint – its tricky to find good photo light in the studio.

Nod to Vincent

I spent all day working on one of my barn paintings.  After I had reached a stopping point I still had a bunch of paint left on my palette and I had been wanting to do this painting for a while.

I have an anatomical skull on my credenza and put my leftover cash in the mouth after work. Its a little nod to Van Gogh’s Skeleton With a Cigarette.

I tried to work quickly and loosely with a limited palette and larger brushes. I’m fairly happy with the results, although my colors are a bit muddy.
