I was commissioned by the son to paint the families old barn. I visited the property in the early Fall, just as the Hudson Valley area was starting to see those impressive Fall colors. I did a few pencil sketches before settling on the best view.
The watercolor painting was completed in my studio as the Fall colors were at their peak, so I took my colors from a few photos I had taken as reference.
