Barn With Blue Door

My newest painting is a barn I saw this summer in Iowa..... set in the middle of cornfields......on my way back from Door County. I snapped the photo from the hiway as we were driving back home! The unusual blue door of this bar attracted me, It is still in the rough stages. I had a blue sky, but it competed with the blue door..... so I decided to paint the sky a brilliant pink as an undertone. After the undertone is dryer, I will scrub blue on top of the pink.... to see if I can get an interesting vibration going! I will post the finished painting soon. Keep your fingers crossed that this will work! :)

I love the sky pink just as it is. I realized after I read the post that you planned to paint over it, but I LOVE It pink. It just took my breath away. Beautiful.....
