When I started this canvas I was attracted to the contrast of the dark brown soil in the field and the flashes of white seagulls following the tractor. I love the green of the trees in the foreground and the pale sand of the estuary in the distance.
I start the canvas with a rough pencil sketch and then I add the coloured paper before building up the layers with acrylic paint. The last thing I add are the embellishments of thread, beads, buttons and glitter to pick out or highlight certain areas.
