I really enjoyed painting this one in watercolours. I felt transported inside the painting. Often when my husband and I have been driving in the countryside, we go past farmers fields where they would be growing something or other. But I have always wanted to see what a field of flowers organised in straight lines, running side by side and never meeting, would look like. I have not had the pleasure to see this in reality so this is the next best thing.
Here it is in its first stages. Again, as previously, I got so engrossed in it, I forgot to take more pictures of the initial stages. Never mind you can still make out the various layers.
Anyway, I wanted the setting sun to really shine and had some difficulty. I did not know how to get the sun's rays to shine over the flowers. After a couple of trial and errors I managed to pull it off. I am quite proud of the result, after all this is my journey of discovery into the world of art and the only way to learn is to paint.
Here is the completed painting which I have named 'Summer's Gift'. Enjoy what is left of the summer!
Love and Peace
