“Entrance to Wildflower Meadow” was completed in three sketching/drawing sessions. The first [sketching] session, without prior study, took one hour and fifteen minutes approximately. The second [drawing] session took about fifteen minutes to tidy finer details and add further textural tones. The third and final fifteen-minute session made neat a few tree branches.
Afterwards I happily signed the artwork in black ink.
Here is a written quote, by me, describing the brief second drawing session “Oak trunk filled, oak definition leaves, trees defined including bark effect, dark tones for leaves added, defined left shadows on objects, defined some branches for contrast.”
One further quote in notating my thoughts “photo on 14th May, i knew it would make a good sketch composition, with the dappled light and full leaves 🌳”. The fullness of the leaves is referring to Spring. As I walked through the meadow that day I was in awe at how the field had changed from winter. Now with a full array of greens and yellow buttercups.
Nature is beautiful dear art readers.
This meadow’s field-fauna grows to rising grasses, buttercups, taller violet/purple harvest crops for hay. By the way, the hay harvest is featured in my earlier sketches, please click the link to see: Harvest from Wildflower Meadow and Harvest in Hay Meadow. Both sketches in the link feature the same field as “Entrance to Wildflower Meadow”, shown in my sketch above.
I am stood in Meadow Three [officially named Hay Meadow] in the composition for “Harvest from Wildflower Meadow”. “Harvest in Hay Meadow” is simply the title I gave the earlier artwork to explain what is happening in the field at that time. Although it is actually a harvest from Wildflower Meadow. Meadow Three [Hay Meadow] is also harvested for hay crop.
Here is the photograph for “Entrance to Wildflower Meadow”:
