"Ripple Through The Meadow" Acrylic 12"x12"

"Ripple Through The Meadow"
Acrylic 12"x12"
I actually finished this one last night but decided to put it aside for a bit. But, on reflection decided it was as good as I could get it without becoming to tight and pernickety.
Looking at it again first thing I'm glad I had left it as it was, the title came as I was transported back to the day I captured the image. It's a little meadow on the Springside end of the country walk cut off from the rest of the fields by a wee burn that sweeps round in a semi-circle. The farmer leaves it and takes hay from it, on this particular day there was a slight breeze rippling through the grasses changing it's colour. It's these little moments I try to capture when I paint an impression of what I saw and felt.

Love this! reminds me of walking out in the pasture on a summer day. I really like all those luscious deep greens against that blue sky ... beautiful!

Thanks Karen for the lovely comment. Looking forward to some nice weather soon. Right now I think we would be blown across the meadow!
