The day I took the photo that this painting is based, it was out of the blue. I just noticed there were straw bales in the fields. Up to the 'high field' I went and saw bales all the way to the sea shore. So took a shot. We had a really lousy summer so this sunny day was exceptional even if it was late, 5th October. I was determined to do a really good, detailed foreground and I spent 3 months alone on the two bales and the foreground around them. I live in a paradise so this just reflects it.
