Autumn Sugar Shack ..11" x 14" ..o/p
I think that this is a deserted sugar shack. I can not imagine it being used next spring in the manufacture of Maple Sugar. These old buildings are fast disappearing from our rural landscape. I am sorry to see that.
I used my limited palette for this painting. The support was the usual under painted Masonite panel. Certain areas of the painting were painted using a palette knife. But, I must admit that most of these areas were gradually reworked with the brush. There is just something that I like about the texture left by a good oil painting brush.
Rain is forecast for the next couple of days, gradually turning to flurries. This is not a good sign for near future plein air painting.
