The tobacco barn

These tobacco barns are ubiquitous in Connecticut's Farmington Valley. I had well and truly ruined this by adding in color everywhere, until this morning when I added the yellow. Before that the effect of coloring it in had been to completely deaden the image. If I were an honest blogger I'd have captured the in-between icky stage, but my camera was in the car.

Still not sure whether this is done. The paint is so thick in spots it won't be dry for weeks anyway. I suppose that this is a fair stage in my blogging career to point out that there is an eventual commercial intent and that most of the art -- especially the more recently appearing -- is available for sale.
