I was inspired to paint this incredible abandoned farmhouse in the Wairarapa region of New Zealand. It dates back to about the 1860's. The corrugated iron roof just screamed cadmium red medium, which I simply can't resist. The typically New Zealand overcast, yet glary sky had a little pocket where the sun shone through and lit up the grass with a gorgeous golden hue.
