Beverley Minster and a poppy field.
Hi everyone, it has been too long since I have posted, so apologies. Ah... just heard on the radio, England are out of the World Cup, confirmed as Italy fail to beat Costa Rica. Sanity. Anyway here we have a field of poppies having taken over a field of rapeseed oil plants. The bright yellow flowers of the rapeseed plants went over a couple of weeks ago and these poppies just appeared. When walking in the field the mass of weeds and the height of the plants made it difficult to move at all. An occasional local train, heading into Beverley rumbled along the tracks to my right. As the track is slightly elevated it appeared to float on top of the poppys. What a wonderful time of the year.

I was asked recently about the colours I use. It varies, though I like to keep them to a minimum, here I used two blues ( French Ultramaring and cobalt ), two yellows ( cad and lemon ) burnt sienna, titanium mixing white, cad red and a smidgeon of lamp black. Spent most time on the different pale greens behind poppies. Applied yellow weeds in foreground with pallette knife. Oh, also, mostly done with two craft bristle brushes taped together to give a single larger brush - a little strange but it works.
