The Green Barn Watercolor

The Green Barn watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci

The Green Barn watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 18 x 21)

The weather is warm and the sky is blue which equals a perfect day to paint en plein air.  This barn is located in Mullica Hill, NJ and currently houses a shop called The French Nest (home decor) and Canteen (a unique eatery).  One Saturday, a friend and I set up our easels and tried to capture this green barn in watercolor.  The challenge was a study of greens and how to differentiate the scene when everything has the same local color.

The images below show the initial drawing and color block-in.

The following Saturday, this painting continued as part of a watercolor demonstration during the Arts Festival in town.  Thunder storms rolled in, so it had to be finished in-studio.

    Well Yvonne,
    You never disappoint. With a handful of colors you’ve captured the beauty and simplicity of this tranquil scene in Mullica Hill. I still remember classes with you and the other ladies, a very delightful pastime. Your patience and guidance still keeps me water coloring with joy and endurance, but that’s OK as it’s kind of under my skin. Thanks so much.
    Gilbert S
