In the corner.
Last of the Wheat Oils on canvas board 6 x 6 inches
The field near the river and not long to harvest.
There is peace today and the air is still.
In a few days the harvest machines will come but the corner of this field is under-ripe. Patches of green mingle with the crop where there is shade from the trees.
Out in the open the sun shines on the golden wheat.
This little study was an exercise in colour and shapes.
I used thick brush strokes to give an impression of the patches in the crop.
There are some tractor wheelings too which add variety.
This is the first image...
I thought the painting was finished but leaving it overnight
I decided to add more colour and change a few things.
