Penn Valley Ruins

This old stone structure is inviting from many different angles.  I first drew this composition from outside of the structure.  With the sun approaching noon,  I could certainly draw this, but paint would have to wait as the light soon hit the front straight on, changing everything about the values.  The back side was also very interesting, giving me the feeling of standing inside, looking out.  This building has called to me every year I've painted here for Plein Air KC, and this is the first time I've answered the call.  I'm sure it won't be the last.  Painting number 1939 in 1939 days.
