A dark sky with scudding white clouds bears down on a sharp-edged mountain range in this moody landscape. Dry orange grain stalks and lush green grasses are blown sideways by a strong wind. The grass in the foreground is so detailed, you can make out individual stalks; as you move further into the landscape, the brush strokes loosen. The mountain range that forms the painting’s horizon line is a stark contrast to the soft rendition of fields and trees. Overall, the picture is a masterful study of color, texture and mood.
