This is the second painting of the Flower Farm series, done also on Ampersand pastelbord.
A while ago I started a small painting from the same reference, but never finished it. Now I know why: I was trying to be too true to the photo and didn't know how to handle the mass of greens. With this one though, I just took a few ideas from the reference and asked myself what kind of day and atmospheric conditions I wanted to represent.
I hope the idea of a hazy summer day, with chirping insects comes through.
