Barns and Winsor & Newton

Just finished a commission for a house portrait – a lovely barn conversion in Tempsford, Bedfordshire.

  1. Thanks Leslie. Sometimes it’s good to have an area of calm in the picture; I deliberately limited the areas of high contrast to the house to focus the attention in that area. Also, the grass in the immediate foreground in reality was very brightly lit; by painting it darker the eye is led into the picture. It gives a more intimate feel; it’s like you’re peering through the bushes(!).


  2. Love the painting, Keith. I really like how you encouraged us to travel the foreground to get to the house. It makes it even more interesting. Congratulations on being a featured artist. You surely deserve it.
