This was an absolutely beautiful morning at Greenberry Sheep Farm, in western Howard County, on a MAPAPA painting trip. Our hostess, Viveca, was there to welcome us, and it was very difficult to decide which of numerous breath-taking views to paint. Ultimately I plumped for the sheep barn, which had some lovely shadows on it. I’m mostly pleased with the result, although it needs some tweaking before it’s frame-ready – mainly in reference to those afore-mentioned shadows…I made the mistake of letting them change on the painting surface, instead of blocking them in early and keeping them that way. Bad girl. Thanks to Mark Coates for setting this up and to the family for allowing us to visit and paint!
