St Cuthberts – Idsworth (X post Open Critique)

This is a local scene of an old 11thC Saxon church in the middle of a field. Lots of stuff going on in this one behind the simplicity of the scene.

All C&C appreciated. Thanks Arnie

I really like the sweeping view in this scene! Nice job on all the details, from the church to the bird on the fencepost.

Re: St Cuthberts – Idsworth (X post Open Critique)

excellent handling of the atmospheric perspective. I kept noticing things as I kept looking.

oddly, the bountiful mass of the ripe grain does not seem out of place or too dominating, in a sense it is the true center of focus, for without bread we would not exist - and giving thanx to God for the bountiful (!) harvest is what I felt when I looked at this.

pleasant on the eyes, a relaxing piece, thanx 4 sharing this with us

life is good

Thanks Matthew and Greg. I took a risk with all the grain but was pleased with the result.
Not thought about the Harvest viewpoint-but that works. My intention was to suggest a picture of heaven - with the various paths, barbed wire, stile and distraction on the right. Thanks Arnie

Love the touch of the bird tho - kind of a messenger of spirit.
