Not one I did plein air, but it was a scene I saw on my way from a recent painting expedition. It was getting late into the morning and my tea had run out so I took a few photos.
I had the suspicion that someone had scattered poppy seeds into the field – there was a house opposite – but the scene was quite arresting even for that.
I had to resort to a bit of gouache in the end along with some scrubbing and scratching but hopefully I captured the randomness of it all.
