Last week I revisited some sketches I had done on a clear September day while sitting in the shade of a Ridgeway clump. As the red kites soared overhead the farmer harvested the lines of crop together steering down the rows making piles ready for baling.
I was quite pleased with the resulting painting; working quite quickly and with a thick oil paint I posted a snap of it on Instagram that same day. Thank you to all who reacted so positively.
I am pleased to say that as a result of that one post the painting is now sold and will be on it’s way to Baltimore as soon as the paint is dry enough. Delighted.

Happy Harvest time
