Plein Air Watercolor Study of a Barn

Barn Loft

It’s getting late, and I’m fatigued.  I went back out and did another plein air sketch of some of the Eureka Springs cottages, but it is too dark to get a decent photograph of the sketch.  Five of the students gathered with me, and all of us took a shot at watercolor sketching until it got too dark.  Then we just had a fun time visiting on the deck, seated in rocking chairs and enjoying the cool Ozark mountain evening breezes.

Here is the barn I sketched in watercolor this morning, while my students worked on their projects (photos in previous post).  The skies were darkening and threatening rain throughout the morning.  It led to great atmospheric colors (and cooler temperatures).  I wish I could return and give this barn another shot tomorrow, but we’re going to gather in the Eureka Springs historic district and start painting the attractions there.

Thanks for reading.
