I was out last week with some friends sketching the Klingle Farm on the Gettysburg Battlefield and we all had an interesting time dealing with the wind. So I took my "field sketches" into my studio and tried some redesigning of shapes and colors to come up with an interesting painting of the Klingle Barn. I added cattle and figures and gave the painting some atmosphere. As much as I like working en plein air, I also like taking those experiences and sketches back to the studio for further design considerations.
