I pass this farm about five days a week and for the last few weeks they have had these huge hay bales in the field.  I really wanted to paint the scene before the bales are removed so I finally took a few photos and did some sketching.

I did something different than my usual procedure and worked on a colorful under-painting.  One occasionally gets some interesting surprises doing it this way.  I sketched with black gesso on top of this.

  1. Wow, I love your colorful paintings, and I’m intrigued by this imaginative underpainting. I was thinking of doing just that, so thanks for the inspiration! I appreciate your comment on my woman by the beach too.
