Disturbance in the Field

This is the painting I did from the sketch the other day. I don’t know why I painted in the little spinning object on the left. I don’t remember why I did it but it’s okay.

My dilemma with this painting is that I was about to paint in some branches on the tree tops. Then I sort of liked it as it was. What do you think? Does it need some branches?

Detail of the spinning or tumbleweed image. It has all the colors in the painting in it. A very fun piece to paint and I really love gouache.

    No branches needed! This actually took my breath away! Love it!

    I like it as is, too. My interest was immediately drawn to the spinning tumbleweed, but the setting has a stillness and beauty to it. Branches might make it busier. Beautiful work!

    Yes, the stark contrast is good. And the colors! (K)

    I didn’t see it as tumbleweed – more as waves rolling into a bay.
    Branches? No. Or, maybe palm fronds.

    It works as is – like the simplicity yet strong graphics.

    I love it as it is too – and your spinning tumbleweed reminds me of a dream catcher. 😊

    So minimalist, I like it!

    It’s perfect without branches! And the “tumbleweed” is whimsical. So very creative. 🙂

    I don’t think the branches are necessary. I think that the stark clean lines work very well as they are.
