Rusty Barn in the Exe Valley

Oil on Board, 10 x 14 inches

A pretty dull day in the Exe Valley this, but the inspiration for the painting was that beautiful orange rusty roof of the barn nestling amongst the farmstead, like a jewel in an otherwise green landscape.

Sometimes, painting a flatly-lit scene can be interesting, as was the case here, in capturing the close tones with little contrast, with, perhaps, the hint that the sun might just break through the clouds.
