Field of Yarrow is one of those paintings where the image was going around in my head for weeks. I was desperate to get it out onto paper, board or canvas, it didn’t matter, but a burst water tank and a good bit of flooding in my house delayed it far more than I wanted. The house is drying out as I type, and I painted this to distract myself from the horrors of dehumidifiers and wet carpets. Joy.
This wee painting was fun to do as it’s so far from the norm for me. I restricted my colour palette completely and I experimented with layer upon layer of the same colour. I’ll be doing this kind of thing again.
