A few days ago, I was able to visit a favorite painting spot near Heber City where many acres are devoted to ranching. The trees and fields are a beautiful spring green and I found a shady spot under a tree with this view. I loved the barn in the distance and the shadows thrown by the trees in the foreground. I thought this would make a great composition so I set up to paint.
Here is the finished painting with a few added touches to make a better composition. I eliminated the foreground fence in favor of a suggestion of one in the distance. I also added a path leading up to the barn.
