Walk One Hundred and Sixteen – Modern art

These bales spread out across the field seemed to me so much like a piece of wonderful contemporary sculpture, I really wanted to capture them. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to slip out of the house and leave the little Emperor behind with the older children. Thus it was difficult to paint with a three year old who had become bored with his own sketch and sticker book and who thought that scooping up the mud on the track and throwing it at everything in sight was a far better way to express himself.

I really love these yellow/blue/green watercolours you do. And this one is wonderful. You're right, it's so very sculptural. Good on you for perservering in the presence of a mud-flinging toddler.

I like repetition in a painting and the field of wheat here looks lovely.
Here we seem to have a different shape for the bales - circular. But this year with the drought - if it doesn't rain in the next two weeks, the crops will surely fail. How big are the blocks where you are for growing wheat? Here, a farmer would sow about 1000 acres and it's costly to put in so looks bad for this season.

I really like this one Julie - you should think about maybe doing it bigger

Gorgeous, it's getting increasingly rare to see the hay bales in the fields like this. So often they are covered in black plastic.
