McCARTY GENERAL STORE

This corrugated metal building in Henley, TX was at one time a old general store, if the faded sign on the side is to be believed. Of course, the other sign says Used Cars... I was drawn to it for a couple of reasons, mostly the rusted metal roof and a shady spot to stand for a few hours while attempting the painting. It is right on HWY 290 west, about 5 miles or so outside of Dripping Springs. Luckily, there was plenty of room to pull over and set up to paint as the traffic zoomed past at 70 MPH.

  1. Your proportions and perspectives are improving. The roofs still look a little lopsided and I'd like to see the foregrounds and trees a little more defined. Good job.
