Tennessee Barn

I've had to set this drawing to the side for just a bit, but promise to get back to it soon!!!

Fellow artist, Gregg Stone, shared a wonderful photo he had taken of a Tennessee barn. I've been itching to draw it ever since he sent it to me. This drawing is currently on my easel while I have been 'meeting the public' at Barnes & Noble.

Barns in Iowa don't weather (age) like this one! This has such rich beautiful darks. It's the darkest I've ever attempted in a drawing. I have much of the barn face completed and will be starting on the background soon!
