a week of concentrated hard work


I’ve had a week of concentrated hard work in the wheatfields right out in the sun, the result was some studies of wheatfields, landscapes and a sketch of a sower. In a ploughed field, a large field of clods of purple earth rising towards the horizon a sower in blue and white. On the horizon a field of short, ripe wheat.  Above all that a yellow sky with a yellow sun. You can sense from the mere nomenclature of the tonalities that color plays a very important role in this composition.
