Colorful Old Barn in Watercolor

Living in the Midwest you see a lot of wonderful barns. Those barns are some of the most fun to paint. From bright red barns to rusty old barns, it is extremely fun to capture their character in watercolor paint. I tend to paint in a more representational fashion. I try to capture color and value that are, at some point, part of the subject.
