Abandoned Haybarn

This is an old abandoned hay barn behind the arena at the ranch. I have watched it fall apart over the last 15 years. I think sometimes it is but another storm from collapsing. This watercolor was done with 3 colors: Madder Lake Deep, Cobalt Blue, and Lemon Yellow chosen based on the best available on the Quiller Color Wheel.

Just Noses

Another Starbucks series drawing entitled "Just Noses" based on an iPhone image taken of a herd of yearling colts.

This evening I did another one of my Starbucks series drawings. This time I worked on a Self Portrait with Yearlings from a cell phone image. I have included both an image at time of completing drawing and the resulting detail drawing. It might be the subject of a future acrylic.
