A Red House on a Field

Whilst doing research on a new project, I enjoyed a landscape. An old house or a forsaken one on an open field is very appealingI always look at this spot from a car and wanted to sketch it. I sneaked into the field from a broken fence. Ants bit me. Only soft breeze talked to me. A quiet and rich afternoon.... I've realised that all my favourite landcapes have something moving such as waves and winds. I was very much aware of the breeze in this work. Technically, I enjoyed this sketch so much. 
Wash, a focal point and a composition, I'm learning. I used a dry brush technique on the little hut to show a rusty roof. A little bit closed up work, below, did not turn out as attractive as the first one. Anyway, I always learn something from every try and move forward. 

As if that sketched spot were left over from construction in busy Sydney. I want to collect such pretty "spots left over" from development and use them for my picture book illustration. 
Another lesson, "Draw it, if I want to draw!" Reluctance will kill a chance. She who hesitates is lost. 
I feel like enjoying landscapes and washes more in 2018. 
Friends, Happy Painting!

  1. Two beautiful landscapes, Sadami, but I prefer the first one also. I can almost feel the soft breeze.
    Broken fences & biting ants - the story made me smile at your determination.
    And thanks for sharing these important lessons. Great post!

  3. Dear Sadami your landscapes are beautiful. They remind me of long lazy summer days and I can almost detect smell of meadow flowers.

  4. Muy bien Sadami, pintar en el campo es una delicia, a pesar de las moscas, mosquitos, hormigas y otros animalillos, porque todos ellos, forman parte de la naturaleza.
    Me gustan esos cielos que has pintado. Bravo!
    Un fuerte abrazo.

      Very well Sadami, painting in the field is a delight, despite the flies, mosquitoes, ants and other animals, because all of them are part of nature.
      I like those skies that you have painted. Bravo!
      A hug.

  5. Great painting, Sadami. I can feel the breeze but thankfully not the ant bites. It was 40 deg when I left Sydney and -5 deg when I arrived in London (after 3 months in Harrington Park, Sydney)

  7. How lovely, Sadami. I really love the look of the wild flowers and grasses in the fields. To see unmanicured areas like that brings joy as it is a gentle reminder how life goes on even when no one is looking.

  10. Dear Sadami this piece speaks to my heart - so beautiful. I think more a painting than a sketch. Glad to read you will be doing more landscapes in the coming year. I will be looking forward to seeing them. Hugs!
