A bit of peace and quiet

This painting has been sold

Oil on hardboard 8" x 8"

Sorry about the glare upper right on this one (near the wall dividing the 2 fields - it isn't like that on the painting proper). However, the colours are pretty accurate in this photo but I will retake the photo in a few days when the painting is dry. Ok, I have blended the paint quite a bit in this, especially in the foreground. It just felt right to do so and also seemed to fit with the "peaceful" aspects of the painting.

I really love your paintings. You seem to have a natural ability with composition and color; many of these studies would work equally well on a large canvas.

Thanks Leslie - it's a while since I tried anything bigger than 10" x 17". I find the 8" x 8" big enough at the moment to be enough of a challenge but I don't rule out bigger work - just never seem to get round to it.

The colours are amazing in this painting Sheila. Moors and hills really are those shades just now!
Lovely piece!
