FIELDS OF GOLD


Completed a couple of weeks ago. This painting measures 80cm x 30cm
It has bronze highlights in the grasses, which shine in the light, 
and you can just see the rolling hills of wilts and Dorset in the distance. 

It was inspired by a trip out in my car one August evening, driving round the village. 
You could smell freshly cut hay where the farmers were reaping their harvest, 
birds were singing high in the trees and the sun still felt warm. 


This is a close up view of the painting as it is now in its finished state, 
and the image below shows its scale, and what it looked like before I decided to add the distant hills. 
This painting is titled "FIELDS OF GOLD"
