Winchuck Nursery Paintout

I met up wtih fellow painters, Rob Decker and Kathy Huxley,  today to paint the beautiful Winchuck Nursery. What a wonderful opportunity. I chose a tree I think they call a flame tree as my focal point. I did my thumbnail sketches. Chose the one I liked. Made sure my focal point was not in the middle of my composition and began to create a plein air piece.
At the end of my session, I realized I had painted that *#@& tree right in the middle of my canvas.
The roof needs to be lighter and the yellow side of the barn is cooler. It was a multi-colored barn so that is why it is peach on the far right. Good lesson.
I still can't believe that tree is in the middle....
