Small landscape: Purple Fields, 10 x 10 inches on cradled panel

Essex has various fields of Borage or Starflowers and I always try to get a few photos.  The colour is a wonderful surprise  within the countryside around Colchester.  Below is a glimpse of my painting process for this lovely small landscape.

Finished!  I enjoyed working with the different shades of purple.  Perfect for a purple loving person :)
