White Barn

Another cloud study. I saw this barn outside Iowa City and found the roof shape and the shadow from the cupola interesting. This was one of those photos I liked but was not sure how to handle it with the centered barn. Experience told me not to try it but I painted it because I wanted to.

  1. It's still somewhat asymmetrical. There's more sky than land and a variety of geometric and natural shapes. It looks odd to shove a building off to the side unless it frames a nice view or something. I can see how a horizontal 12x9 would be less interesting than 9x12
