Flowering rapeseed fields in Wiltshire

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.
