1221. Barn at Napa-Sonoma Marshes

Day 26 #stradaeasel

My day 26 painting is 

“1221. Barn at Napa-Sonoma Marshes”

Oil painting on 6” X 12” Gessoed panel

By Mariko Irie

When we went to cycling the last time, I discovered cross the railroad track there is a nature reserve which is open to the public. 

Today I went there, crossed the railroad track where there is a parking. 

The sky was monotone gray, but it was supposed to be sunny.

Then I expected they sky would dramatically change.It would be over 80F° in the afternoon.

I wanted to finish my painting before getting hot.

I started painting.

In the sky appeared white spots.

When I was finishing it was all blue sky. I love blue sky better than gloomy gray sky, so I wiped the gray sky from my painting, changing it to blue.
