Ruts and Puddles Oils on canvas board 5 x 7 inches
Along the back road to Spridlington I spotted these wonderful puddles in the tractor tracks.
They stopped me in my tracks too...I just had to paint them.
Sometimes it is pure luck of being in the right place at the right time to find a little gem to paint. This may be a simple subject but I found it exciting as a possible piece. The ruts made by the tractor wheels were quite deep so the rain filled puddles turned into mirrors.
Keeping my brush strokes loose and using quite a large brush I abstracted the scene.
