Soft Wheat Field


Soft Wheat Field
18cm x 14cm. 7 in x 5.5in.
Oil on stretched canvas

This is a study that I have done to support the larger landscape that I am painting, “stage by stage” over on my blog Muddy Red Shoes. This is quite early in the morning; clear blue sky and fresh new green everywhere. The wheat is soft, like a baby’s hairbrush, in the next field, fresh earth lies rich and dark waiting to be sown. The pine trees have bright tips like little lime-green lights.
