These doors are part of what I believe were stables at Knox Farms in East Aurora NY. I was attracted to the colors of the building, and the way they contrast with the green doors.

I created a pencil sketch on the gessobord and then I used thin washes of acrylic to create a watercolor look. Thicker acrylic paint was used in a few locations such as the gray wood. I enjoyed painting the glass windows and the light blue reflections of the sky.

I love the looseness in this! The variety of colors work beautifully!
