Gettysburg Farm by Julie Riker

On Tuesday I painted with SVPAP member Jim Bricker in Gettysburg. 
We drove around a while scouting locations.
This was painted at a historic farm inside the park.
I liked the arrangment of outbuildings and the pattern of shadows.
The sun was in and out, so I did my best to catch it while I could.


Above is the painting in progress and below is the finished piece.  I added a few minor adjustments after I brought it home.

6x12 oil

So nice, Julie--love the sway in the roofline and the soft palette.
