This started out a simple class exercise in value: copy the steps on the handout to paint the barn with four monochromatic values. But in the sketch we were meant to copy, the barn, fence, and tree were rather too boring for me, so I added a window and doors to the barn, a few more values, some extra branches and knots on the tree, and textures in the fence and shrubs. It was actually pretty fun
So, in short, the original idea wasn't mine, it belonged to whoever wrote the book my teacher got the handout from, but I added things and liked how it came out, so I'm posting it...
Burnt umber( I think) and strath more paper.
Also too big to scan, so phone photo
