Barn Dance - oil on canvas, 32x40
Yay! My lantern painting, "Barn Dance" is finished! I did all but a couple strokes on-site. So although it is an unusual scene for a plein air piece, it is. I was outside, although under and over-hang looking into an old barn. I'm not very fond of this photograph of the painting, so I may try taking it outside to photograph. Although it is big, so doing so gives me some problems. Ah well, another challenge!
I was so taken by the glow of the lanterns, and the way that they danced in the wind, that I was trying to capture some of that magic. I found I had to let the lanterns dry in-between times so as to get that glow. It was quite a challenge, and lots of fun! Enjoy!
