Canola

There’s nothing more vibrant than a field of canola in bloom. I was visiting a friend who moved to a house in an agricultural area and this is what I could see from her back deck. If I lived there, I’d paint that view and the vast sky just about every day. This was sketched on some Canson paper left over from my Craftsy course preparation — long strips of paper that are perfect for little landscapes.

    So glad you made a craftsy course! It’s wonderful! Do you think you will be making another trip down to the west coast or maybe Alberta for a workshop sometime soon?

    This one is so easy on my eye. I like the fact that there is no definite focus calling for attention… just three layers on the ground and a few more layers in the sky. BTW, I really like that simple sky!

    • Thanks so much Ross. It was a very relaxing scene to paint, as you can imagine. Nothing moving, no cars, no people, no parking problems…

        Ah yes, no parking problems… how lucky for you. No more confrontations with police, buses, security personnel or nuns lately?

    Beautiful. In England, where we just came from, the Rape (yes) crop is about to flower. Gorgeous yellow fields.
