Finding this field filled to the brim with masses of flowers was so exciting. I had to photograph, then shot the quick video-trying to take it all in. The sounds help take you there so please have a quick look.
But it was when I took a pencil to paper that I started to understand the patterns and rhythm of the field, the feel of the specific place. I wanted to quickly sketch it without getting too bogged down in the details so I could retain the immediate sensation. My attempt to convey the essence of the place, including the breeze blowing through from the ocean close by, needed a light touch.
All the very best,
Here are some paintings of other flower fields to enjoy:
