I much appreciate the comments you make, and hope you are all keeping well and free from Covid-19. It's certainly changing life at the moment, and surprisingly I'm managing to do more walking than normal, as I'm not travelling around with work. Getting out into nature is really the best thing we can do if possible, and May is a great time to be out on the hills with the sketchbook.
I continued with my sketch, but then, back came the three tractors yet again, belching out fumes. This time they turned off at the junction where I stood and into the lane shown in the painting, which was my composition. Off past the farmhouse they roared and there was peace for a few minutes. Sure enough, shortly after they once again hove into view, still in perfect formation, coming back towards me, so I have included one of them in the painting. Unable to hold back my curiosity I stopped them as they approached to find out what they were up to. They were lost and were looking for a farm in the vicinity - probably for some agricultural soiree. I wasn't familiar with the local area but I had a map and soon put them on the right course, and off they went.
