This is a 9 X 12 pastel of a farm in Kansas….well, two farms.   I took two shots several years ago and combined them for this painting.

And finally……………..

I hope you enjoyed seeing the steps.

    I love many things about this project, watching the progress.
    -The way you merged two source inspirations into one piece
    - How the horizon came together
    - The vibrancy of the clouds
    - The remnants of the fence rail

    Thanks, Thom. I rarely copy my photos exactly. I use then as a jumping off point. I think I’m done with this one, but I have to live with it awhile to be sure. I have some minor things I’ve seen already, so it’s probably going back on the easel once more………then I think I’ll frame it.

  3. This one is a keepter! It was fascinating to see the progression. Lovely work! The last steps made the whole scene come alive.

    Thanks, Leila. I have a couple of picky things I think I’ll change and then on to framing!

    I really like the clouds! They really stand out.

    Thanks, Doris. They look better in person than the photo.
