Autumn Barn

Even though my main medium is pencil, sometimes I enjoy painting.  I find that books on painting are helpful when you don't know where to start.  That kind of book usually gives step by step instructions on how to draw or paint a certain scene, from still life to landscapes.  The type of paint you use is another thing to think about.  I use mostly acrylic, because it is fast drying, but I am considering trying watercolors. The following barn was painted with acrylic paint.
