Red Hay Barn in Winter won a Special Merit Award (painted media division) in the Northern Light Gallery’s Landscape Competition. I had been wanting to paint a red barn for some time when I finally came across this beautiful reference photo by Priscilla Rink. The barn in the photo was a deeper red, more maroon, but I changed it to be a bright red. This was one of the first paintings that I have painted in acrylics and one my first on Gessobord. I really enjoy the subtle texture of the Gessobord. Red Hay Barn in Winter was made with acrylics on 14″x11″ Gessobord.
