Artist's description:

I travel to Northumberland often to spend time along the coastline which is be rugged, barren yet breathtaking. One stretch towards Alnmouth grabs me especially (with the Coquet Island lighthouse on the horizon) and one day last August I stopped and painted a field of barley, with the tractor grooves cutting into the crops. I painted and repainted this scene but couldn't capture the feeling I wanted. In annoyance I started erasing the surface with sandpaper, redrawing with graphite and larger brushes being less precious. I liked the quiet energy of the scene and way the painting flows in and out of saturation as a result.

Materials used:

acrylic and charcoal on hardboard

Field, Northumberland (2013)
