Step Four: A lot has happened…

…since the last picture. I became so frustrated I forgot to take an intermediate picture. I’ve added trees using hooker’s green dark and burnt sienna. I made an attempt at the background bare trees.

The intriguing angle of the cast shadow was important to the composition and drama of this barn so I took some time getting the color and shape right. I then added a few building details to the rest of the barn using a #4 round sable.

Other fore- and middle-ground details were built up, such as the fence to the right and the drainage trough in the foreground.
