Barn in Field - a watercolour painting by John W. Johnston

Barn in Field

I call this a barn but I'm far from sure it is. Still, 'barn' is easier to say than 'old stone building'. This was taken from a photograph and although it is a fairly unexciting landscape, there is something about it that greatly appealed to me from a painting point of view. So much so that I felt drawn (excuse the pun) to draw it again in both pencil and pen-and-wash. For me, the pen-and-wash version is the one I like the best even though I have made the trees a bit too rounded and artificial looking.
