I had one of my best Sundays painting with Mixed media artist Shirley Vauvelle. The temperature which soared to a mighty 28 degrees didn't distract us too much from the exquisite blonde curves of the Yorkshire Wolds in July. The haystacks are already made up into tantalising squares and rolls.

I want to describe the heat in the scene even though it is all a white cream apart from the dark green trees and also the sense of dramatic  curvaceous space and white gold beauty, hallmarks of the gentle Yorkshire Wolds. A bit of red in the yellow mixed with white is beginning to get there. Still working on them today. Watch this space…
