quick sketches

Both of these two small works were done to demonstrate a quick 5-step plan to block in a landscape and get the essence down on canvas.  I left them in this unfinished state to show that they COULD be considered "done" if you wanted to. Or, you could go on to put in more detail.
I share this 5-step plan in a landscape class I teach.  This plan is particularly helpful in working plein air, though these two sketches were done from photos, as demos for a previous class.
I think I might develop the barn scene into a larger, more finished work at some point. I liked the idea of the dappled light on it.
