This is a 9 X 12″ pastel on Fabriano paper. It’s been awhile since I’ve done a process study. I hope you enjoy seeing the steps to the finish. I usually start with a rough sketch in a neutral color to decide placement of objects, etc.
Next I work on the sky. I know a lot of artists leave the sky to the last, but, for me, it sets the tone of the scene.
Now it’s time o start adding color and painting the objects.
I always work top to bottom and then later go back and add or change the interior items I’m not satisfied with.
Finally, the bottom half is completed and any corrections are made…..actually, I made several to the buildings!
As usual, any comments are more than welcome. I think I’d like to spend a little time at this farm.
