Boundaries



For Illustration Friday - Boundaries

I took this literally and painted  a landscape boundary.  I love how stone walls and hedges criss cross over the countryside, dividing the land into portions.  They mark the boundaries of the farmer's land and the  boundaries for animals.

Lovely, reminds me of England, but it's probably not :-)

I like the way this leads the eye to the horizon. I wonder where it would take me? Nice work, Cathy. x

I shall be different and say it could be Scotland - lots of the fields here have stone walls! Lovely work!

It is definitely not Holland because Dutch farmers used hedgerows as boundaries for their small meadows. A landscape like a patchwork divided by these boundaries make charming paintings. Like yours.

love the colours of the stone against the fields, and the calm skies far back, looks very peaceful.

What a beautiful piece! Hedgerows and stone walls are so much more civilized that the all-too-common fence, aren't they?

Very interesting illustration, it looks realistic and abstract at the same time.
