The Green Barn Watercolor

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.
