The colours are on the cool side because of the time of year and the tractor tracks show the mud in the field to emphasise this. The sun is always low on the horizon at this time of year often with high glare and causing strong silhouettes. I liked that the gate was closed but provided no real barrier because the top hinge had broken and the bottom hinge was on the way out.

The sketches are made using watercolour washes and then reacting to the density of washes to create the composition. This means that the drawing or painting does not have a conscious plan before commencing and is allowed to develop using the original applied paint and trying to keep the imagination controlled for the execution.
