Knox Farms has a number of old barns and I was struck by the contrast of the red barn against the white building. I used mostly cool neutral colors for the roof with a few warm colors to make it interesting. The majority of this painting was created with thin washes of acrylic with a few areas of thicker opaque paint on the white building, and the green foreground areas.
