abstract oils – oilseed rape

I’ve been really inspired by how much the fields have been changing around us recently – the oil seed rape has popped up everywhere and it’s giving the landscape so much definition, there are patterns all over the place!

I’ve been sketching out some compositions with my awesome faber-castell pens and working these up into drafts in oil, I’ve finally bought the small panels now to turn these into finished pieces, here’s a little taster of how the drafts are looking, hopefully the finished series will be quite exciting – I am planning to do at least 4, and am really hoping they’ll go up on the wall… sorry about the quality of colour – they are really a bit brighter than this and also quite tiny – about A5 size…
