Old Barns & Gardens, Mendocino, Northern Calif. (Results)

Postby gaelwriter » Sun Jul 30, 2017 11:27 pm

I invited several local artists for this 56th Crawl, but alas, I had to do another crawl as a solo. I stayed close to home, the coastal headlands in Mendocino County, California, and this time I explored some old dairy barns. One was constructed for a dairy farmer in the late nineteenth century. It seems to be holding up real well, but is becoming engulfed by vines and cypress trees Also sketched at a heather and conifers garden, which is rugged enough to stand up to the strong coastal winds.

All these watery works look great especially the old barn which reminds me of countryside houses built in old days of Korea.
Thank you for sharing! :thumbup: :clap: :)

Beautiful sceneries and appealing color set.
Gives a real feeling of an stormy atmosphere. :thumbup:
