Pierce Point Ranch - painting a day
"Pierce Point Ranch" 5x7" oil on canvas SOLD
Pierce Point Ranch is an old dairy farm on Tomales point. It's now part of the Point Reyes National Seashore, and the park service has done a very good job maintaining the buildings and providing information about the history. The hay barn is a massive structure, and I liked the contrast in scale between the two buildings, as well as the color of the lichen growing on the hay barn roof. I must have done 4 or 5 preliminary sketches trying to figure out the proportions and angles of all the roof lines for this painting.
