Thompson Farm Shed, 159
After leaving Mr. Chestnut's we moved closer in to Moreland and painted at the Thompson's farm for the afternoon. There were too many great structures and fields to chose from, so I picked to one where I could paint in the shade. At this paint, after dusting off a small painting by this point, I really had a grasp on the palette and what it was capable of. I could see it in everything I saw, which is necessary if you aren't going to bumble along through a painting. It makes it much easier to see, mix, and execute. I struggle with this a bit, as usual, but at the end, I was pleased with everything but the cloud. I will rework or repaint this one at some point.
