Colored up cattle farm

All colored up

All colored up

It’s done and in the mail.  I’m pretty happy with the way the color turned out.  As I’d hoped, the fixative spray popped all of those greens nicely. Surprisingly, I had more trouble with the shadowed areas up on the hill rather than than all of that grass.  I couldn’t get it too dark up there or I would totally lose the foreground.  I put some yellow flowers in the front field to keep the eye from moving around too quickly in all of that green.

The red barn is a nice focal point.  It does overpower the house a bit, but what would you expect for red versus white?  The fencing turned out not too obtrusive, just a suggestion except where boards were used and then merely accented the structure nearest.  This almost makes me want to try another landscape.  All that grass actually was a little bit fun.
