|Dusk in Indiana, Revised. Watercolor and crayon.|
10 x 12 inches.
Well, my painting morphed. You can see the previous version here. I was trying to integrate the barn using an overlay of Caran D'Ache crayon, and things got way, way out of control. Then, I managed to rein them back in to reasonable, but it required sacrificing the barn and silo. I kind of like this version. I especially like the texture I was getting when I applied crayon, wetted the crayon down, and then drew into it. It almost looks grooved like a wood cut.
If you're wondering about the different size--in the previous version, I'd planned on cropping the sky down. This version has a much taller sky, and is a smidge wider. I typically plan on some crop in my paintings. In the past, when I've not allowed for that, they've been very hard to frame.
