Hi there, I painted this from a photo I took while out one day. This actually is an old school house, love the light on it. I like the soft loose feel it has, half way through I almost wiped it off but you have to hang in there. I have been enjoying using a palette knife a lot lately, I used a knife in the foreground and laid the paint on fairly heavy. One thing nice about oils you can lay in some heavy paint and create great texture. This is oil on a 8 X 10 stretched canvas.
