Today I started the painting of the Sparrow Farm shed. It is one of the largest paintings that I have ever done (5’Wx6″H), so it was pretty exciting to begin. I first under-painted the canvas with burnt sienna to make the colors in the painting more vibrant than they would a plain white gessoed canvas. After that dried, I began to add the base colors throughout the whole painting. I plan on continuing with this painting tomorrow.
