Painting at Bishop Hill, IL pt.2


The backyard area of Aunt Annie’s Antiques is filled with a wide array of interesting furnishings and plantings, any one of which could make for an interesting painting. We both wander around a bit to try to make up our minds on what to focus on. Dave finally decided to feature the small barn at the back of the property. I continued to look around but was eventually drawn to the barn, also. I felt that I probably should have chosen another subject considering that I had incorporated the barn into last week’s painting. I decided that the viewpoint was different and that the barn was more or less in the background and that my focal point would be the small weeping crab apple tree that was in full bloom.
