Experimental Farm

Some Experimental Farm Photos from November. Beautiful place to sketch farm animals and nature! Admission for students is $6. It's closed in the winter, but the barns are still open so the animals can be fed. So admission is free then. Visit to know more.

Morning sunlight in the house is just too beautiful not to notice! The warmth of the sun makes the shadows look cooler with the ambient light, so there's this richness of colour. I also love how the reflective light of the sun bounces off the wood panel floors. The whole room just glows!
