“Cobb’s Barn and Distant Houses” by Edward Hopper
My scene will definitely include a barn and some distant buildings. The view I have in mind has both. My barn, like most, will be the colour red. This Hopper landscape has lots of great reds, both sunlit and heavily shadowed (foreground and background versions). This will save me a lot of work when choosing the colours for my barn. Thanks Ed. I will be taking some preparatory photos of Delta farmland for my painting later this week, but I doubt I will get dramatic shadows like this. In fact, my photos will be quite bleak and flat. However, with help from other artists, I hope to make them into an interesting farmland painting. Or not.
