The Old Jail

In Heathsville, Virginia which is my basic mailing address, there are some wonderful historic buildings. The old jail is just one of them.

I want to repeat this with a larger painting so I can put in more details. I also think it would be a great location for some plein air work.

I'm going to two plein air events this spring/summer to see how the pros do it. I can really see how working from a photograph is completely different from working from life. Between the camera and the computer/developer the colors and values change dramatically.
