Grass waves in the Lawn

Grass waves in the Lawns - Oil painting on canvas panel (8" x 6") by Benoit Philippe

Saturday morning was glorious and I went outside to paint in the park, at the end of our street in Swindon (England). At the moment, the overgrown grass has some purple grey seed heads.

I liked the path going through the long grass and the yellow opening in the background. The texture of the foliage offered a good contrast with the smooth grass waves.

I added two walkers to give a sense of scale and perspective and to provide a focus point. The figure in the foreground also helps to break the yellow pane of yellow.
