Airfield Grey Barn

Here is my second shadow shape sketch from that productive interlude in Airfield.
Rather pleased with how it worked out, despite the face that the side of the barn is a bit darker than I had intended and that I added a shadow that wasn't there when I started to paint (bottom left). That's what happens when you paint outdoors: the sun moves (or rather the earth moves around the sun) and shadows come and go. But, hey, it's convincing all the same, and I would never have dared tackled such complex shapes a few months ago. It's good to see progress!
