Old Homestead - Plein Air painting of a Pioneer House near Yellow Springs, Ohio
This is one of the paintings I completed in the workshop with Tim Horn that turned out okay. The subject was an 1820's pioneer home nestled in the woods. I thought the red of the house would contrast nicely with the spring greens in the foliage.
The owner told me the brick in the house is orgiginal and it was in great shape, proving yet again that they just don't make things like they used to.
