Your Watercolour Paintings › Midwest Farm

Driving through Missouri on our way home, I snapped a picture of this farm out the window. This is a pretty normal scene driving through the Midwest of the US. I’ve cleaned it up a bit as I think the actual place was abandoned.

This is a lovely painting! Well drawn and painted. You did a nice job cleaning it up as the barns look well kept. I actually love painting old and abandoned objects and buildings. Oddly, they appeal to me.

Nice painting. Excellent green colors. I ask this all the time, what did you use to mix your green colors. Foreground specially. Thanks

Thanks, Judy! I mostly “cleaned up” some of the vegetation and dropped one building out altogether.
Alex, I used a simple palette of cobalt blue, French ultramarine, lemon yellow, new gamboge, pyrole red, Pyrrol Scarlet, Payne’s grey, and some burnt sienna. The foreground was probably a mix of cobalt blue and new gamboge but I may have used the for ultra marine. I can’t remember exactly. I copied what Patrick has taught me in his Udemy classes. Put the 3 primaries in a mixing area and just drew from each changing it up a bit as I went. I relied heavily on a scrap piece of paper to test out the greens as I went.

I really like the feeling of light in your painting and the interesting zig zag way of leading the eye to the focal point. It is great to see local buildings, I think that often scruffy is full of character!

Very nicely painted. Nice range of greens. You have created a lovely feeling of heat and light. I love the way the light is bouncing off the bard roofs. Splendid! 🙂
