BARC Swine Unit No. 2

These are the pig houses (swine houses?) at the BARC site in Beltsville. They look like they're constructed pretty solidly and remind me of the story of the three little pigs. I seriously doubt these would be blown down easily. It's easy to forget that this is within a few miles of Washington, DC. I've been using larger brushes than in some of my previous small paintings. After the painting of Baltimore I realized I was grabbing the small brushes not just for the detail but for the bulk of the painting so I'm trying to break myself of that habit.
