The Green Barn Watercolor

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.

Ann Whitall House – Plein Air

Ann Whitall House Watercolor (Framed 18 x 24)

Ann Whitall House Watercolor (Framed 18 x 24)

The Ann Whitall house is an 18th century historic house at Red Bank Battlefield Park, located on the Delaware River. The pine tree and back of the house were sketched on one of the first nice days in early spring. In spite of the wet spring and summer season I participated in a one-day plein air competition here and chose to paint the river view of the house. I brought my extra-large beach umbrella thinking it would shade me from too much sun. The umbrella saved me and my painting from the two unexpected torrential rain showers. You just have to laugh and go with it, because it was still a great day to be outside painting.

Thanks to the Gloucester County Cultural and Heritage Commission, they really did a nice job with this event.
