I had some fun during the 100 Day Project…I chose farm-related things as my theme and just started playing!
Buildings are always interesting things to draw/paint. Perspective will make or break it! Many, many moons ago I was traveling up north and I saw this barn. I managed to snap a photo of it and I used it for the basis of this acrylic and ink painting. The unique thing about this one is that I used a sharpened stick (yes, you read that right) dipped in ink. Talk about a fun and freeing experience!!!
Your original is approximately 5 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches and painted with professional grade paints and sealed with a clear acrylic finish.
It is not UV protected, so keep it out of direct sunlight to prevent fading and discoloration.
Your painting is signed on the front. If you would like me to personalize the back, please leave a name in the notes section of your order.
I used high quality watercolor paper for your painting, so your framing and display options are virtually endless. Here are some of my favorites:
– Use a ready-made frame/mat from any big box retailer as an inexpensive alternative to custom framing. You can use glass because it?s on paper!
– Purchase a custom mat to use with a larger frame. Small art with wide mats in big frames will give your new artwork a classy gallery feel.
– Use an acrylic gel medium to “glue” the painting to a canvas or wooden art panel for a very contemporary look.

(I don’t have a post for this one, but the techniques were the same, just a different color palette.)

I did some painting this morning. I did use stencils and stuff to paint the background, but these are the tools I used for the foreground. My new favorite took is a sharpened stick dipped in old ink. #primitivetools #hadfun #oldbarn #100dayproject #100daysartonthefarmproject
