Comment from Wyatt Detweiler


I like this painting the shading is good. And the light soft colors of the watercolors have great harmony.
The only thing I think could be done better is the actual drawing of the barn. I think the front of the roof and the back do not match and the roof on the little side building is a little lopsided. It's still a great piece of art though

This is a well executed painting. The brush strokes is clean and the painting shows defined detail. The tight framing works, even as some parts of the building are invisible. The colors are pleasant and realistic. The composition is balanced.

Lovely watercolour painting of the old barn and silo. I like the delicate colours in this and the way the leaves form a frame at the top sides. Very good use of light and shade. I like the sky. Lovely composition. Good luck in the contest. Suzanne

The way you painted this picture makes it look real. I love your attention to detail. I like the framing of the silo on one side and the leaves in the top left hand corner. You have included a massive amount of detail. Good luck in the contest!

Comment from Artistic Chick


Wow, that is so precise. The control you maintained in painting this barn design in such precise detail shows incredible talent and patience. The lines and other detail is strong yet your shading is true. Really nice.

Wonderful initial impression: this is a beautiful scene ! I love the barn and it's placement behind the golden crops that are yet to be harvested.the barn is well created with a beautiful shape and structure and I love the worn barnwood, . I like the tree reaching across top left and the trees growing up close to the silo. This is very well created with beautiful colors and tones and very impressive details throughout. Well arranged and presented! Best wishes to you in the contest!
