Thorp Mill

Oil on linen on panel, 6 x 8 in. -- SOLD

I visited this historic mill in Thorp, WA, with several artist friends to paint there. The building is turned into a historic museum, and the exterior is well maintained for the visitors to walk around. I was intrigued by the subtle variety of shades on the building in the early morning light. Toward the noon, the light and color changed so much, while I was still finishing up this painting. But the experiences of the dramatic morning lights and crispy atmosphere were so inspiring. I wore my dark glasses throughout the painting again. It works pretty well for working with very bright subject like this building.
