One of the tricks in painting barns, or any structures really, is to obscure the point where the barn meets the ground. This roots the building so it appears to "grow" out of the earth instead of laying flat on it and gives it an organic feel. I've always felt that about barns, especially old ones, that they're an integral part of the landscape and not really a man-made like, say, a bridge or an office tower. Perhaps it has more to do with age and the longer something lasts, the more it becomes part of the natural world around us.
