Rowe's Barn On Coulter Road, VT
Rowe's Barn On Coulter Road, plein air watercolor, 12 x 9
This is another painting from the North Bennington Vermont Plein Air Event held earlier this month. Despite a rainy, grey day (thanks to Hurricane Lee), I managed to paint this lovely old barn. Right after finding this spot to paint the rain subsided and slowly the sun began to pierce through the thick cloud cover.
I loved this peaceful setting with the barn high on the horizon above me. The run off from the heavy rains was meandering through the fields, making its way under the driveway to join a babbling brook behind me. The steady gurgling sound kept me company. The overcast skies created soft colors and sublte shadows from the diffused light.
