A lovely scene, I like the old and the new, also good use of color - lots of character in this.

Thankyou for your comments, sincerely appreciated. I was experimenting here, using imagination to juxtapose the old and the new. A bit like me, getting old, but valiantly trying to keep up with the new (you have to when you teach!)_

Love the composition and the great colour. There is something fanciful and charming about this.

Artist Statement
for Tony Stubbs
Tony StubbsRapidly leaving 60 behind
Working full time as lecturer(electronic engineering), but try to keep my hand in.
No real formal training , but copious encouragement by inspiring art teacher has has kept me motivated even after over forty years!
I like to work in many mediums, acrylic, watercolour, pastel, ink, pencil, coloured pencil, charcoal etc and sometimes experiment with mixing with various degrees of success.
I am now trying to escape from the tight painting style that I have been used to doing, examples of which are seen here.

How long do all of you keep your references...are you partial to particular ones which you may use, time and again ?
Terrific that you had the great reference photos to recreate the weathered old barn. I like to paint these scenes, so many are vanishing, collapsing in place... view answer
