Painting Inspiration: Old barns!
I love old barns, don’t you? They have such character! Now that I live in Northeast Texas, there seems to be quite a few. Even nicer is some aren’t very far away. This little trio cluster of barns wasn’t far from our home and became the basis for my painting titled “Barn Trio” which is 9×12 and available for purchase direct.

When time permits I enjoy painting on location. If you wish to paint landscapes it’s such a valuable learning session because you see so much more than what a photo will show. But when combined with photos for reference, it captures the essence of the scene and becomes more true to life.
Here’s a little on location video showing the start of the painting and the scenery. Enjoy!
Well, I thought I’d share a short oil painting video that I created. Originally it was for Instagram, (@hagermanart) so it’s less than a minute. It shows the general order in which I work, whether it’s under my Byron Signature or William Hagerman Signature works.
Hope you enjoy it. This little painting is also up for auction on eBay ending Saturday June 26, 2021. Direct Link to auction.

Although, I have written about this subject before, I wanted to now share a video clip from a recent Zoom Art Class Session on negative shape painting.
This is really a valuable skill that anyone wishing to paint or who wishes to improve their drawing skills needs to practice. To learn this skill and more, please contact me to join one of my Zoom art sessions. We meet twice each month. The Fee is $80 for the two, two hour classes.
In this post I wanted to share with you a short two-minute Oil Painting Video Demo: Old Barns.
Alla Prima or the Direct Method of Painting
In this tutorial, the subject of old tin barns, which were found in New Mexico made a nice subject for this painting demonstration. The direct method or alla prima approach was used in which the entire painting was completed in one session.
