Seems no matter where you go in Virginia, you will find this farm house and you will probably also find this shed. Well, this house had an outside second floor entrance added, which is rather unusual, but it’s pretty typical for the most part.
I struggle with them and I think there is something off with the perspective. It seems like there is a shift between my eyeballs looking at the scene and then translating it to the canvas. In any case, it was almost high noon, so the shadows are flattened quite a bit.
