The field outside where I live. Barley is growing.
Painted from life. I parked my car in the garden car park and painted the view out the front passenger window. There was continuous fine weather in the first week of June that allowed me to do this.

In late May and early June, the buttercups come out in their full yellow glory. I was looking for a field which wasn’t mown for silage and had plenty of these wild flowers. I found one not too far from home. We’re having great fine weather and I’m trying to get the most out of it by painting outdoors every day.

I enjoyed doing this. Very refreshing subject matter and it’s my first larger oil painting. This fellow was standing in the field opposite my house.
