33 on 33: Day Thirteen

Well, the rain falls down without my help, I'm afraid
And my lawn gets wet though I've withheld my consent

–TMBG, "It's Not My Birthday"

Today's stop for 33 on 33 was to be near Cold Creek Road and I was fairly certain I'd be painting this huge red barn right at the intersection:
Barn at Cold Creek Road.

Passing this beauty day after day since Day One, I had made a mental note to paint it from an extremely low angle, setting up my easel very close to the structure, which would require being outside and, since it was raining today, I was once again painting "en plein van." I went a little bit down the road (here's my Map of Progress) and set up in a little accessway to a field and painted that landscape, experimenting further with colour and form.

And here's the painting.
