Field in Luray VA.

Field in Luray VA
This is a sketch I did in watercolor while staying in a cabin in Luray VA. It was done at the edge of the wood and was looking out on a hill with a grassy field that had been mowed. The mowers roll the grasses into these big cylinders. They are just all over the field. The gravel road cut through the field and gave it some interest. I struggled with the composition because the blue stone path sort of started at the edge of the scene and led your eye nowhere. There were some flowers in front of the hay role so I developed that to give the picture more balance and movement back and forth.

When we packed for our little visit I forget to bring my paint brush collection and only had three brushes to work with. It was a challenge to work with so few brushes but I feel it helped me develop my skill a little.
