New Yellow Grass Meadow Painting with Wild Flowers and Blue Sky

I experiment with lots of different background colours and compositions for my grass and flower landscape paintings. I find a vivid blue sky that fades to white on the horizon works quite well and sometimes I like the grass to be lower in the centre of the painting and then reach up the sides at either end of the canvas.

Using the painting techniques I have developed over the years I build up a rich mixture of colourful grass and flower stems, waiting for one or two of the layers of paint to dry before applying the next layer of paint. I sometimes like to then contrast these long streaks of colour with round dots and splashes of paint to simulate wild abstract flowers. I’ve painted this particular style of painting a number of times now and have found it’s quite popular with customers. Shown here is the latest version of this painting, which measures approximately 160 x 107 cm.
