Saturday Plein Air - Gambier

Today we painted on the grounds of the Brown Family Environmental Center near Gambier. BFEC is part of Kenyon college:

There were many interesting views, but I was taken with the odd little shed by the old maple trees. When we arrived, there were nice shadows on the shed. This is a very strange shaped shed. The corner to the right was rounded. I picked a straight-on view, which probably wasn't the best way to convey the shape.

By the time I got set up, the sky turned overcast, so I had to wing it. I worked in pastel on 500 grit UArt. Process shots following:
