Fields Of Corn

Fields Of Corn
plein air gouache  6" x 8"
please contact me if interested

This gouache was also done from the roof top of our Airbnb apartment in
Cotacachi, Ecuador.  Like many old colonial buildings there was a sink on the roof for hand washing the laundry.  Believe me, we did not had wash our clothes!  There was a modern, technical washer and dryer in the kitchen (which we struggled to figure out how to use!)  But, I did use the sink for the water for my brushes.

Every where you looked (in this part of Ecuador), in every small empty alley, side garden, massive fields, were crops of corn.  These fields are in the valley below Imbabura Volcano in the mountains to the east of the town.  Cotacachi sits in a valley surrounded by 4 nearby volcanos.  The volcanos were often covered in clouds.

Below are 2 views of Imbabura Volcano from different locations and different days.
