Curator's Note: The hayfields were a beloved subject of Monet, and here, Rachel pays a beautiful 21st century homage to him.
I painted this piece on the train from Lyon to London after a day of touring the Beaujolais region in France. The sun was setting which made the fields glow bright yellow. This piece is oil on canvas board, so framing is optional.
The day I walked into my first painting class changed the way I see the world. I love to study the shapes, colors, and light around me. I am a diligent student constantly trying to expand my understanding of different techniques in oil and watercolor. I often set up lessons for myself and don’t move for hours once I get started on a piece. Painting is my reward.
