Landscape Painting



The first week of the summer holidays and all we have had is cloud and rain!
My sister and I took our dogs and children for a walk through the fields and I not wishing to miss an opportunity, took some photo's of the landscape.
The fields had been full of blue flowers which I had sadly missed, but they had gone over to reveal a beautiful pale colour green, a perfect shade with the purple Borage and pink grass.
We walked to Kenilworth castle and I love this view through the trees.

When we returned home I started to do some more painting and sketching inspired by our walk.
Fingers crossed the weather improves!

I wish you were nearer to here - there is an exhibition in the Station at Richmond and one or two embroideries - not a patch on yours.

Beautiful painting Michayla. I love the look of that field in the photo with the borage growing in a strip.
