"I wandered lonely as an Orb"

Inspired by William Wordsworth and a passion for Light Painting, I set off to find a field of yellow - not daffodils but rapeseed! Yes this one is from a few weeks back when the urge to combine landscape and light painting got the better of me!

So the desire to paint the night with light took hold of me! I packed all my kit into the car and went off in search of several locations, this one was created quite early on in the night before I went looking for places to burn wire wool!


I liked the combination of the field and the puddle here, it was a tad tricky getting this one right and I made several efforts before the mud took it's toll on me and I decided enough is enough! I quite like the impact of the light pollution and the movement of the nights clouds which add to the image. Next time I think I'll paint the puddle a tad with some other light just to boost the foreground but otherwise enjoyed this painting!




" I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o'er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."


William Wordsworth, written in 1804, it was first published in 1807 in Poems in Two Volumes, and a revised version, the more commonly known, was released in 1815.
