"by the roadside"  in mixed media ink technique.

Hi Mike, I really love this painting. The hedgerows at this time of year are fantastic aren't they.

Lovely and rustic Mike. Love it.

I like this Mike, the light shining on the fencepost looks great.

Great painting Mike...really captured the feel here...

Hi to all,many thanks for the comments. Yes , the road side flora and fauna are often eye catching. We do not have the same amount of hedgerows as found in the UK , nor yet the wild flower variety- we are mainly with fences and our paddocks tend to be larger and there is a lot of hill country as well.. We do not have the footpath system of the UK so actually getting onto and into the country side is not easy - except in National Park areas and we do have those in abundance. I was fortunate to have access to farm life for some 14 years and was able to see quite a lot of country . In many parts of NZ , the country is not as "smoothed out" as the UK - we have a very young recorded history and settlement by the pakeha - .

Another cracker.

Lovely contrast between the light and shady areas.

Really lovely, great contrasts Mike.
