"Springtime Yellow"

Yellow rapeseed fields
For my latest painting I decided to stay with the beautiful yellow fields of the oil rapeseed crops. Due to crop rotation the opportunity doesn't arrive every year, in fact I've waited 2 years for some good local displays.
My walk took me to the western outskirts of Lewes in the early hours of the morning. The colours were stunning and the frequent slopes that my path took were ideal for capturing the curves and contours of the South Downs.

It's great to use such vibrant colours , Spring is a delightful season !

Painting the Sussex landscape in Spring

Bo peep on the South Downs
There is nothing brighter or more colourful than the yellow Rapeseed fields in full bloom!
My travels took me up on top of The South Downs at Bo Peep near Alciston in East Sussex.
As you can see the views were stunning.....

I've wanted to paint this view since we went to the Firle Hill Climb last September
But now the views are even better and a perfect composition to paint. It was hard going at times but I persevered and got there in the end!
