Red Barn Across The Pond 8x10 Plein Air

A bright sunny summertime painting like this can be a challenge with all the greens but I feel I kinda got it with this one.  I went into the plein air knowing it was a lot of green and focused on what was different about each of the trees.  One at a time to be more precise.  In the past I just would try and force different elements to be distinct separate colors.  This time I forgot all that and just painted what I saw and it worked.  Used a painting knife for some sections as well so for those of you who love texture this one has it.
