As I approached the mill for the purpose of studying it and taking references to produce a painting, I was briskly overtaken by a very professional looking chap with about half a ton of photographic equipment over his shoulder. He went into the field and stood right in front of the mill. To me this was not the best view of the main subject as the mill would just dominate too much. I thought the best location was to pick up the poppies that were there. They would enhance the foreground and along with the rough grass, add to the impression of depth and distance. I added the hay bails to give a little form and add to the content of the composition. These would have been there anyway at some time.
