I love how the light falls on the meadow , striating it with lines of light against the dark of the bush.
I painted quickly as I was being eaten alive by sandflies and I hopped around quite a lot. This was the most energetic painting I have done in a while! I discovered that the Crocosmia montbretia is considered an weed in New Zealand! A South African import.....no wonder I fell for it!
