Old Oak Barn


Wonderful as always, love it.!!

Great light in this one, Paul, love the old corrugated iron roof, too!

Good inspiration!

A good composition Paul, I like buildings obscured by nature.

Thank you all for your kind comments. They do look great when partially covered up by nature Andy as you say , some that certainly catches my eye. The colours unfortunately have lost something in the photo process they are not quite as vibrant.

A lovely rural scene. I love old barns!!

Lovely Paul.


A lovely tree sheltering the old barn - good work, Paul!

Very good work once again Paul.

Lovely composition and painting Paul.

Thank all for your very kind comments I do appreciate them .

Well painted Paul. Good composition and great colour.

Fabulous tree, even dead it looks mighty.

Nicely composed and worked Dixie

George, Fiona and Martin thank you for you much appreciated comments.

Just found this one Paul and really like how you have portrayed the old barn and the tree. Another lovely painting

Thank you a Cheryl for your kind comment.

A4 watercolour in A3 mount of a old barn with a dead oak tree at sunset . An imaginary scene that I came up with I’m sure inspired by the hundreds of old photos I look at , I think I have a building in mind then add a tree thst I’ve seen and build up the image that way . Can I claim it’s imaginary or should I say inspired by several photos , sketches etc. still working on loose images but can’t do that with a tree like this.
