Black Mail Pouch Barn

6.5x7.5 watercolor on Langton 140 lb cold press paper by Daler Rowney done for day 3 of the Leslie Saeta blog '30 in 30' challenge where participants around the world post their daily work.  Ref courtesy WetCanvas/Gracie Lives.  This black painted barn was located in Kentucky and the advertising trend for Mail Pouch tobacco began in 1890s and continued thru next century.  With this I have made a dirt road in foreground versus the grass that was there, added tire tracks, more dirt in middle ground, and added a sky.
