Old Barn


I love old buildings, too, Paul! You have captured this one so well!

Very nicely painted Paul.

Another good barn painting Paul. Decaying buildings are endlessly fascinating, constantly amazed too at the speed at which nature reclaims them.

Looks like I'm not the only one who likes old buildings! Nice one Paul

I love the old buildings, boats etc , so much to see in them and definitely test out the skills to bring out the rust, decay etc .

23x36 cm watercolour of a old barn with recently a cut tree trunk . Inspired and adapted by a online photo , I do love these old building especially when they are starting to decay . The colours and shapes are amazing , looking into then through holes in the roof and sides the inert structure can often be seen . They remind me of a ancient beast where yiu can se the skeleton in and under the skin .
