Field at Watkins Road
Many of the farmers around my neighborhood have been busy plowing the fields getting ready for the next planting. This plowing makes for some interesting patterns in the rows. When the earth is disturbed it frees up many great earth tone colors not normally seen. I took a picture of this setting around 7:45 PM. The sun was just setting on a slightly overcast day. Many blues and purples filled the sky , but there was still enough light to allow for some brilliant siennas in the recently plowed field. The field was painted in a series of grids - I have used this method for sky and water however this was my first try at land mass using this method.
