Paint Party Friday - Week 13 Year 2 - Wheat Fields

Earlier this year I started a painting that I called "Wheat Fields". I sort of liked it but it needed something more. My wonderful Paint Party Friday friends gave me lots of suggestions as to how to finish it off. Thank you everyone for all the feedback and suggestions!

It sat and sat, and I finally came back to it and this is how I finished it (or at least I think it is finished...)

"Wheat Fields"

(This is where I left it last time...)

What do you think - is it finished or does it need something else?

Hope everyone has a great weekend. I'll be by to visit as weather permits - if rainy (again!) sooner and if sunny then later as the weeds hide my flowers and my flowers call to be rescued...

  29. The birds were just the right touch and the mountainy backdrop also gives it the depth it needed to feel more spooky.

  30. It's perfect- my eyes went to the last photo first and I really liked that but thought some black or birds would really make it fantastic. Then I saw what the finished psinting looks like at the top and it is ....fantastic. :-)

  34. Hi Eva. I like how it came out. The composition is great, as the viewer travels around the painting from the wheat to the birds, and back again to the wheat! Great job. :-) Happy PPF!

  37. Love moon and the birds. They both give it life!
    Thank you for your get well wishes, Eva. Yes, that is a self-portrait from a photo I had a friend take of me for one of the Daily Paintworks Challenges. I added the dripping paint to the final painting.

  42. That's wonderful! It has so much more depth now.

  43. So nice to see this again, and how you developed it. I like the depths you added, with the wheat stalks in the foreground and the birds flying away in the background. I think I might try to blend the moon a little bit into the gorgeous purple sky, but otherwise it looks finished to me.

  46. Hi Eva, I think your painting came out beautiful. I think it is a good idea to always be working on few paintings because sometimes things are not working right and then it is good to keep that one at the side and work on another..

  47. Eva your piece is wonderful. Love the colors and texture!
