Painting No. 160 - Barn VI

8" x 6" - Oil on Canvas Board

After No. 159 I really wanted to work on my colors, focus on the tree and see what happened. I have this little William Foster book I bought nearly 18 years by William Palluth about painting in oils. I never liked the stuff in there but he had some very specific info about mixing colors for landscapes.

I had always flipped through that book but this time I sat down, read it and used his mixes. I'm not sure this is exactly what I was looking for but it was really fascinating. Mixing paint is like cooking and he was using recipes I was not familiar with. So it was great to try that out.
