Empty Barn Oils on canvas board 5 x 7 inches
This old barn stands empty on the Wolds.
Possibly once a home for wintering sheep it now gives
a welcome to nesting birds and passing rabbits.
This painting was nearly abandoned as I struggled to keep it loose and not too detailed. Many of my paintings are without signs of human presence as I like the image to remain purely landscape or seascape. When a figure or building is included, the focus changes when the viewer's eye travels directly to this so I placed this building to one side.
Now there is a way past into the countryside beyond. I can see the view.
