buttercup heaven


Hertingen, DE, originally uploaded by Rob Carey2.

April 23, 2011. I dusted the pollen off my scooter today and headed out into the fields. There were tractors everywhere, churning up the soil, and these fields of buttercups under pale blue skies. I landed on this spot and enjoyed again the most amazing spring I can remember since living in Germany.

Lovely view! One of my favorites.
Almost can feel the gentle warmth and listen the bird's music coming out of trees.
Happy inspired Easter!

You are so right- there were birds in the background the whole time, and the sun was so warm- I love it. You have a wonderful Easter as well, Paulo.

You capture light so well in these drawings/paintings! How long does it take to do one, say, "Buttercup Heaven"?

RobCarey said...

thank you, Ben. This one actually went really fast, since there were no buildings and windows to draw- probably only an hour to sketch, then a little less to paint it.

Yes, really excellent, you are mastering the depth in these drawings.

I'm really liking the opportunity to sit in places like this and draw/paint. So enjoyable.
