American Impressionist Oil Painter

Barn VIII - Impressionist Painting by Adam Houston


Oil on Canvas Panel|8" x 6"

For 162 I decided to use a slightly different approach. This time I painted the whole thing in Burnt Umber, let it dry and then came back on top with the color. I wanted to make the underpainting super loose and then only put a small amount of color on as needed. So if you look in the trees you can see all that funkiness but it still feels tight. This one is probably one of my favorites for the year and it was really rewarding to make some progress after working at these. I loved the process too and plan on trying that again.
