Yolo Farm Boneyard
I painted last spring on this farm in Yolo County, CA. Since then, I have taken note of farm bone yards. That is where all of the large metal structures are left to rust and deteriorate. This is not bad. I scraped some burnt sienna on the car to give it rust. I think it is a 1940 Chrysler four door sedan. The cows have plenty of grazing space. It had recently rained so there was a mud track in the foreground. I had fun with the clouds. While my wash for the sky was still wet, I tilted my board and streamed some water down it. I them gave it some bumps and there you have it.
