After Swathing II

“After Swathing II” reflects the shady tree line and open fields beyond on a hot sunny day at the north end of Dauphin. I had originally set out to capture the scene as a pastoral field of uncut green that included a small patch of sunflowers growing wild. That was before the unexpected happened - the farmer came through with his swather and cut the field down. It was a beautiful August summer day with me sitting under a line of shady trees soaking in this peaceful view as I daydreamed and drew... Using my plein-air sketches from that day, this artwork was completed back in the studio, purposefully in an unusual color palette.
