This is a general landscape of Prairie grass land around Canola field during summer time, out in the country side. The field shines like gold in a bright sunny day with yellow flowering Canola crop. Roofs of the granaries and barns reflecting sun light, stand out in the field like engraved gems sparkling on a gold plate.
Hummocky landforms are like Camels resting down wrapped in a golden-green blanket holding moisture for the crop. Different shades of green grass smoothly rolled over hummocks look like singing and dancing frills getting pleasure in protecting their jewel. Gorgeously disciplined rows of Birch and Poplar trees stand like brave soldiers joined hands with Prairie grass in support of protecting this beautiful treasure. Soft fluffy clouds passing by, whispering and watching the wonders of God.
Canola is a modified name of Rapeseed. It is also called "Field mustard" in North America. Rapeseed oil was initially used as a fuel and lubricant in ancient times. It contained a high concentration of Erucic acid. The name
"Canola" was derived from "Canadian oil, low acid" after genetically modifying Rapeseed for food products.
Only three colours i.e. Red, Blue and Yellow are being used to bring out different shades in this piece of art. Please note, I am not trying to showcase my Art work here, but actually trying to show God's amazing creation, a blessing for us by portraying and bringing this landscape out from other part of the world.
I am fairly new, an immature, a very beginner for water colour, just started getting my fingers into this liquid media of art. Not sure how many more miles to go ahead.
