This view is probably of farmland near Aspatria in Cumbria, where Sheila Fell painted many pictures. The season is probably about April, when main-crop potatoes are generally planted. The artist has concentrated on abstract qualities of paint and pattern, using vigorous brushstrokes all over the picture. Storm clouds outlined by the sun echo the shapes of the hayricks in the field. At this time, Sheila Fell was very interested in the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh, and painted many fieldwork subjects similar to his.
