Watercolor painting of a barn, silo and farmstead in winter

Spring on the Farm
By Michael Holter
12 x 16 in.
Available through the artist

“Spring on the Farm was painted during a demonstration on Watercolor Live. The scene is a typical rural Americana scene that I have come upon many times during my travels on the back roads. Using value changes, linear perspective and contrast I was able to quickly and succinctly describe the mood of the day.”
