I enjoyed painting this on a glorious sunny morning in May, the huge fields of flowering rapeseed crop near Chirton and Marden in Wiltshire. Trying to capture the sense of scudding clouds casting shadows on a breezy day.
I used 'artistic license to compress the landscape considerably and encompass the ploughed red earth area on the left.

The Hawthorne have been so splendid this year. I managed to escape from the stained glass studio and find some time to paint a tree in a quiet rural cul-de-sac near the canal at All Cannings Village in the Vale of Pewsey, Wiltshire.
It definitely needs more may-blossom, shall try to continue with it or start a larger study but this is the first spontaneous splash of paint
The medium is oil on primed board. Size 12" x 10"
