Farm

I have some problems with this, mainly that the kids are HUGE compared to the barn. I tried to make the fence darker and bigger at this end to make it appear closer. I don't think it entirely saved the thing. I liked the idea for this painting, maybe when I get better I can do it right on a large board. I was pleased with most of the rest of the things in it. The chickens are a little stiff legged but not the worst I have done.

When you wrote 'kids' i thought you were referring to goats! You see where my mind is ;D. This is very ambitious and you've done really well with it, Tami. It'll be fun to see your subsequent versions of this idea!

What a lovely pastoral scene Tami. The little bikes on the fence set the scene so well. the barn just looks to be in the background. That works well.

Wow, this is really good. You do a GREAT job at something I like a lot: forming an emotional impression of a scene. Exaggerating perspective, colors. Even the horizon line. That's what I'm after with my stuff. In this case the farm scene conveys an impression.
