Walnut Orchard Mustard

This impossibly beautiful scene was also painted last year from the same location. But this year was different. After I set up and started painting, the property owner's son arrived with his tractor mower, warning me that the mower threw rocks, and proceeding to mow down the mustard because his mother, who owns the property, doesn't want anybody looking at the magnetic scene. Fortunately I was able to finish the painting from photos. A word of note: English Walnuts are grafted onto Black Walnut roots, because the roots are stronger, making the base of the tree look like it is sitting in a bucket.,
