A perfect day for plein air painting in Southern Oregon. It was sunny, about 70 degrees, and no wind. We were privileged to be painting at a 100 year old inactive dairy farm with many old buildings and a lot of local history. The farm is still in the original family’s ownership. I chose to paint the “milk house” which the daughter said was where they stored the cans of milk before they went to the creamery. I used a silhouette approach which gave me more time with consistent lighting. I was looking at the north side of the building. As the sun rose light hit the East and South sides. As the sun began to drop it hit the West side of the building. Consequently I was happy painting the north side. Such a charming building with it’s stacked doors and outside stairs.
