PAINTING ANOTHER NOSTALGIC BARN
I said I would paint another barn and here it is. This time the sign on the barn isn't advertising Rock City, Tennessee. It is an advertisement for Royal Crown Cola. It is still sold these days, but now it's owned by Dr Pepper/Schweppes group out of Plano, Texas instead of being its own company.
I put together two of my photos to create this painting. The first photo is of a barn sitting downhill on a country lane, but I don't like the shape of the barn for my painting. The second has the barn I like, so I just inserted the second barn in the place of the first barn. Look at the two photos below and you'll see what I am talking about. Of course, I had to reverse the big barn and I added an extension on the side. I also added a small creek in the background. It came out looking very nice! I have the steps below for you to follow. Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy it!
To see the final photo please go to my "AVAILABLE PAINTINGS" page and under Collections: Nostalgia. Thanks!
This painting is with me at the Art Show on September 13th in Paris, Ky. If you live in the area come on over to the Hopewell Museum at 800 Pleasant Street, from 5 - 8 PM. I'd love to meet you!
