Painting in the fields of Waterloo

Here is a quick study done during my recent trip to Belgium. It was painted near my parents' house, in the fields where the battle of Waterloo happened. This is the view towards the next village called Plancenoit. I liked the swirly path in the fields and the hazy view in the distance, and thought it was telling a story.

This is the only painting I managed to do during my stay because this trip was all about family and the house was full of kids and babies! I actually took my niece with me to paint this view and she did a lovely little painting by my side.
