Barriere Farm Touchups

5x7 Oil on canvas unframed $100.00 shipping included
I thought I would repost this little painting because it was
sitting on my desk and a couple of things bugged me. One
is that the green field on the hillside was "coming forward"
as it was the same colour and value as the flat field. The
other was the barn roof. To stay true to the exercise of
quick studies, I could only let myself change it if I promised
to do it with only a few strokes. I like both the changes.
The bit of blue in the field seems to push it back and I like
the roof brighter. What do you think?

I like the adjustments... the background definitely recedes much more. Can't wait to see you soon!!!

I was glad I noticed it, funny how I can see it better when the painting is photographed sometimes. Sorry the first picture wasn't better quality but too late to retake after changing it. See you then!
