About Canola Fields in Botriver:

I am drawn to bright, vibrant colour and I think that you find the most beautiful range and combination of colours in flowers and nature. We were visiting the canola fields in Spring to see the expanses of bright yellow canola flowers.

Once I had taken a few photos I saw that the landscape shapes were quite geometric, and the natural colours included purples as well as yellows and greens. I have tried to reflect these observations in this painting. Below is the photo that inspired the painting.

This trip was the first trip out after lockdown. I wanted my painting to reflect brightness, hope and the beauty of nature.
