Spring to life.

                   Spring Fields    Oils on watercolour paper   5 x 7 inches   SOLD

I love the pale velvety greens of spring wheat in our arable fields.  In autumn it is nice to look back and remember the optimism of the fresh growing crops.  

Recently I painted this scene on board.  The paint moves in a different way as board is sometimes slippery whereas the textured watercolour paper holds the paint well.  The fun is when I pick up a knife and scrape parts back to expose the surface of the paper. Too much scraping looks odd but just a little adds a few highlights..
