Sunshine, a little heat, reality and some imagination came together to create this pastel. The view was of a strip of freshly tilled soil on the side of the meadow that will grow vegetables.
I was originally planning an oil sketch of the meadow, but the black flies came out in numbers and drove me to the relatively bug-free zone of the gazebo with the screens in place. I still had a few of the meadow, just not the one I planned. I added some things, took away some things and tinkered with colours. Where the red came from I don't know, but i like it.
Its 9 x 12 on colourfix paper.
