Haybales in The Paddock

Haybales in The Paddock
Oil on Linen on MDF

Another landscape painted from my studio back door, or I should say, painted on my back door.  I stick the small support  directly onto the door using blu-tac.  I enjoy the fact that I have got the perfect  painter's landscape complete with a cliché and mandatory red barn, right at my doorstep!  I wonder if the farmer is concerned about putting his hay in a living cliché...? I would think that the tradition for red comes from the fact that red oxide is a very permanent and weather resistant pigment.
