Adding the structures . . .

I have a ton of photos.
Wonderful wide open spaces here on the prairie.
Gorgeous skies and ocean-like fields.
Of course, there are distant barns and farmsteads but these have been largely missing from my paintings.
Until now.
It's time to add the hardscape to the landscape.
And I began with these two.
One is a pair of barns outside of Seward Nebraska.
The other is a roadside abandoned schoolhouse or tiny church.
Adding structures gives me a chance to play with shadow and perspective.
Slowly and surely improving.
