Rape marking the passage of time

The seasons make the passage of time

Another year of Open Studios has passed and the rape fields are going to seed. As someone who settled in the UK 5 years ago one of the striking things that stood out is all the rape fields and the bright yellows of late spring and early summer.  You have a mental image of lush green landscape but in reality there is so much more.

This is the first of the rape scenes and was inspired by my walk to the local village shop and is on the edge of the A1

This next year was painted plein air and I tried to capture the bold almost sickly yellows

Sometimes the colour is just overwhelming!!!!

and finally from this year an experimental piece using oils on paper and finishing with pastels.
