Farmland always excites me as it was a part of my growing up. This is a quick sketch one afternoon of those cool rolls of hay that you see. In the spirit of Monets hay stacks. Again the colors did not transfer very well. Nice textures in the clouds and a thicker paint quality which I like. I have been looking a lot at the group of 7 from Canada. Tom Tomson in particular. Very graphic yet a textural quality that I do like.

  1. I just came across your website and blog from the list of painters in Mitchell's book. I also have been studying the Group of Seven, in particular Tom Thomson whose work I also admire.

    This is a wonderful painting, love the colors and brush strokes.....very painterly.
