Over the last few years, while travelling in Europe during autumn, I have come to love a few landscape features.  Living in a country where hay bales are mostly of plain square shape and stacked up high on top of each other, I am always on the lookout for the round ones when driving through the European countryside.

 

 

 

During our last road trip through Scotland, I took a few reference photos of hay bales for painting.

Aside from the round shape of the hay bales, I also love the shadows they cast, as well as the tracks and grooves in the fields.

After coming back home,  I started drawing one of the landscapes from Aberdeenshire featuring hay bales on the fields.  Once I was happy with the composition, I got to painting.

I chose oil to paint the landscape.

I love impressionist/post-impressionist style oil painting, Monet and Van Gogh being my favourites.  I painted the field in that style using  similar small, soft brush strokes, which I find very calming.

I had a marvelous time painting the warm, rich colours of hay bales against the woods and the deep blue sky with floating clouds from one of my favourite places in the world.

Wandering Camera – Wildflowers

Shooting Star Wildflower Watercolour Painting | Whims And Fancies

 

 

Welcome to this month’s Wandering Camera!  A couple of days ago I was plopped on the sofa, balancing my sketchbook, a tiny jar of water, palette, paint and brush on a little board.  While looking out toward the blooming flowers in our modest little flower garden, I was doing a practice sketch of a Shooting Star.  That set the stage for today’s Wandering Camera.

 

There is an easy mountain trail about a half hour’s drive away from our home.  I love to spot various wildflowers along that trail and photograph them.

As I was taking the photos, I commented on how some of them are growing like weeds.  My husband laughed and pointed out that wildflowers are weeds! 

Weeds are a gardener’s bane, specially the horrible kinds that grow in the flowerbeds.  However, I do voluntarily grow a few wildflower “weeds” in my garden.   Many Thanks to my friend Mary for sharing her Larkspur seeds with me so readily.

 

I just realised that this post marks a whole year of Wandering Camera.  Last year Wandering Camera Revival started with my sharing photos of these Larkspurs from my garden –
