Artist's description:

The dark sky is hanging low over the rich red earth. Distant rainfall is suggested but the sky is clearing to the left and low hills and trees are pale against a brighter sky.

This painting got lots of votes and got me placed in the top 50 in the Artfinder / Liquitex "Muted Collection" It is very sombre and painted in minimal colour of Burnt Sienna on grey Khadi paper with a wash of white watercolour to add a little brightness. I wanted to get across the idea of positivity and hope.

This image was inspired by what I saw when I was driving yesterday approaching my home. I live on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, just where the flat Fenland begins to rise. I could see the Wolds in the distance and the fields had just been ploughed. Here and there were little remnants of the winter crop that had been recently harvested. It was like an abstract scene so I've deliberately kept this painting very minimal.

Watercolour in black, white, brown, russet and blue on grey Khadi paper.
