Farmer’s field

It’s a minor miracle that I got this sketch done because I spent most of the time swatting mosquitoes (which could be the reason the row of rhubarb plants looks like a line of green cars). But it was a good day for skies and great to get out of the city to paint some wide open spaces and a horizon line. I’d love to work this sketch up into a full size painting but I will have to remember two things for next time: move the horizon line down to include more sky and pack the bug spray.

    That’s amazing… I was sure that it was a line of green cars (based on your previous car drawings). : )
    But overall I just love the painting… really loose… and fast. You are really good when you are loose and fast! (Now there’s a comment that could be misinterpreted… make sure you read it the right way)
    And 1000+ followers! Wow!

    I love this one Shari — must be because it reminds me so much of home 😉 A very deep-rooted feeling for this one.

  4. As always, wonderful sketch. As for the mosquitos, outdoor sketching has it’s challenges, though somedays, I’ll take natures mosquitos over the many, many challenges that come with sketching outdoors in a city (like the homeless guy repositioning himself closer to “the artist” in hopes of scrounging change over people stopping to admire “the artist”)
