This is painted on Daler Rowney pastel paper using soft pastel, hard pastels and pastel pencils. It measurers 26 cms x 40 cms.
Until about two years ago this farmhouse was the view from my kitchen window but sadly it was demolished to build a new housing development.
It is drawn from memory and a very bad photograph taken as the demolition squad moved in on a day that was pouring with rain.
The sheep and cattle used to come close to my home to graze - too close sometimes like the front garden!!!
I tried to do this painting as a panoramic view as I wanted to get the red barn in.
I painted it because I missed looking at the old farmhouse which I think was around 150 years old.
Having seen it on screen I think I will tone down the greens a bit but I thought I would post it anyhow and get your thoughts.
