More quick studies...

"Wind walking through a wheat field"
8x6" oil/canvas panel

Heres a little study I did this morning to loosen things up. I'm kind of stuck in "research mode" right now, reading up on costuming of the mid 19th century - in this case, calvary uniforms. Fairly interesting to be sure, but a bit dry and tedious. I get fidgety when I don't paint everyday and lately its become a bad habit. So, unless I'm going full tilt on a larger painting, to clear out the fidgets, I plan on getting back into the practice of these daily studies.

  1. What a beautifully enigmatic study. I love this. It's like a powerful energy swooping across the field, stirring up and talking with the birds.

    Fabulous composition too.
