Vetch Field

                                   Vetch Field    5x7    Pastel 

This is a 5x7 pastel painting done partly by memory and reference.  I was impressed by the understanding nature of the wildflowers, giving the vetch full rein to wander at will. It's a small flower, growing in long thin vines, very helpful to farmers as it's roots loosen the soil, so I've read. As an artist, I like the way it turns the field into a sea of blue and purple.
Enjoy the day!
