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..
