Field of Dreams

Field of Dreams
16 x 20 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
Took a small study I did a few weeks back and scale it up much larger .
The challenge in scaling something up larger is you often need more information, otherwise it looks empty and unfinished. In this one, I fortunately had some good references to remind me of the feeling of this field which I came across recently while in in Provence.

Another specific type of challenge with this type of subject is managing the delicate balance between having it complex enough to communicate the feeling so busy-ness and chaos of the wildflowers and not getting it so busy that it's overwhelming. Hopefully struck a good balance in this one.

The study and some sample reference photos are shown below.
