Wheatfen by davepuls Wheatfen by davepuls
A new kind painting for me - of Wheatfen, a beautiful nature reserve on the Norfolk broads, UK. It is very large (for me): 60x40 cm (24x16 in). Cryla and System 3 acrylics on canvas. all painted with a single painting knife. Although this painting is completely original, the style is inspired by Van Gogh's wheatfields. Photographed in strong sunlight to bring out the impasto texture.

Do let me know what you think!

Very nice. My favorite Van Gogh painting is "The Sower" and your painting has a lot of the same elements I like best.

Lovely!
I grew up in those reedbeds and you have captured the seemingly impenetrable density, and given the reeds the texture of the peat that they grow in.

Wow this is amazing! I love that you used different brush strokes to create different textures throughout your artwork. I really like the sky, the clouds are so good! They aren't cliche, which makes it awesome :D

I actually live in the East Midlands, but we have had wonderful sunshine for the last 2 days... I find that it makes such a difference photographing art in direct sunlight, and it is even a part of the art in some of my works (did you see my "12 red roses" piece?) and they often look better than the "real" thing...

Yup, I saw the roses. They ARE fantastic and such a sweet sentiment for "Mrs Dave". Hehe, A love reminder 365 days a year.

Im an Essex lad and we have had the dullest February for loooong time. So yous lucky to have had sun. It DOES add great depth to your photos. I bet the paintings look spectacular on the wall.

Keep trowellin' that paint man... it looks great :D
Best wishes

I love those textures.
well, sky and ground seem to be a bit too seperate speaking of color, but thats just my humble opinion. Great work.
