New Little Watercolor Study

This little painting is a study from a photo that I took at the farm two summers ago. The farm is laid out in strips to prevent erosion when plowing and fitting the ground. As an artist my eye is drawn to the patterns that are created by alternately planting different crops in these strips. In this image the fields of wheat are starting to turn golden and the oats have a lovely bluish-green haze. The undulating hills create movement. The little barn is perhaps too stark. Maybe I’ll push that back into the tree line a bit and bring more definition to the foreground. We’ll see!
