North Carolina Tobacco Fields - 10

Watercolor: North Carolina Tobacco Fields - 10" x 14"

When I visited my son in Greenville, North Carolina, a decade ago, you could see tobacco barns dotting the countryside. Tall barns in the center of fields that would be used about three weeks a year to dry the newly-harvested tobacco. When I visited again in 2019, there was hardly a tobacco barn to be seen. So I constructed this painting from three sources, a typical red tobacco barn, a tobacco field, and a wonderful storm-cloud sky. (I'm trying to learn to paint grand cumulus clouds.) 191005. Watercolor, 10" x 14".
