Another painting from Martintown

This is the first sketch I had painted on my excursion to Martintown in August. I finally took the time to adjust a few things, mostly lengthening the barn. That might seem like an odd thing to adjust, but the barn had this feeling of being really short, or sunken into the ground. I originally painted it as it was but realized afterward that due to the lack of scale in my painting, the barn didn’t look right. I had to adjust its height to get the right feel for it. Does it now work? I’m not sure!
