30 Day Challenge - Day 19 - Barn View

I drive around a lot always looking for new scenes to paint here on Long Island. Yesterday I was going from a friend's house headed to a particular spot to paint and was using the GPS on my phone for the best route. On the way I passed this awesome barn and just had to stop. I had never seen it before. So the barn became the subject for my Day 19 gouache painting for the "30 Paintings in 30 Days" Challenge. I sat along the side of the road to paint this.


  1. What an interesting silo!I don't think you would see much of the building in the summer so you found it at the best time. Great piece Joan!

  2. LOL, you are right, Val. If the trees had their leaves I probably would never have noticed this spot. Thanks.

  3. I envy all the wonderful, sketchable things you see so close to home! Are you going to do OneWeek100people this year?? It's starting in a couple weeks!

  4. Thanks so much Joan you really give me so many ideas. Now that I am more in the country I can find these scenes also. Just got to learn to look again. Also have seen several older cemeteries so need to go in and look at the headstones and pay my respects.

    1. Thank you, Nelvia. Sometimes you just take a different path and encounter something new.

  5. Another great painting. So much perspective and lines to deal with. Excellent job.
