I began the next collage in the Homestead SD series.
The homestead in this picture is a little large.
You can see the additions made as the farm prospered.
This painting is better planned than the last one I hope it goes together easier and faster.
I enlarged a portion of map with the Platte area.
It shows Rt 44..that is taken W of town.
I will put an road going south that will lead to the rest of the directions and the title of the painting...2 mi W 5 mi S...I think it will be 5 miles I need to travel it to make sure.
The fence I am going to put in the foreground of this painting will be a post and barbed wire model. In my mind the fences tie it together as a element for my series.
The homestead painting on the canvas you see i am taking from a photograph I took of the place.
Using permanent ink I have drawn the likeness and used several washes to get this much to date.
