Roadside Family Farm 10" x 12" O/P
This is the latest piece that I sort of experimented with the application of the paint on the "swirly" white gesso. I think that this would be the next step from the last painting in application of the paint. I feel that the layers of paint and "how" they were applied are more evident in this piece. Except for the fall colours of the trees, which were layered in their application, the sky can be seen as more scumbled with thin layers over the textured gesso and the 'pinker' areas as "scumbled washes" if you will, allowing the texture of the gesso to influence the application.
This may also be seen in the face of the barn . The scumbling and wash of colour to interpret the values and colour of the barn as opposed to the individual boards just seems more natural to me.
The foreground barnyard was also treated this same way.
