A Farm Yard at Neubridge Lea

Now that the distractions of the holidays are finally over, I can get back to painting. I paint barns and sheds because they are simpler to design and paint than houses. I also don't like painting tree trunks, so I stick my trees behind buildings whenever possible. The branches on the left (somewhat edited out in the photo because of the waviness of the edge line of this piece of canvas after it's been painted on) I put in to frame the painting and create a sense of enclosure or coziness. I really shouldn't do that: I should be brave enough to paint winter open and raw as it is, but not this time...
