Pastel on Colourfix paper (burgundy) 50cm x 35cm
This is a familiar sight in my area at this time of year. The smell of freshly mown hay is in the air and beautiful rolls of hay are to be seen everywhere, ready for storage as summer stockfeed.
I completed this painting last weekend (29/11/09) and was pleased with the way it turned out. I kept to a limited palette of colours, concentrating on the yellow/purple complementaries.
