84 cm x 61 cm, oil paints on linen canvas.
Date produced: While living at West Beach, after my first exhibition (1984-1986).
I enjoy open areas of wild grasses, wild flowers and birds, especially in the sun with free breezes - lovely freedom and life, everywhere.
I produced this painting between about 2 pm and 3 pm in the afternoon, over a period of about one and a half months in early Spring. The colours in the painting are a little dark (I have corrected the reproduction a little), because the canvas was in full sunlight when I painted it. I have since learnt to keep my canvases (while working on them) in the shade, for better control of tones for the expression of bright light.
