As you look at this scene, imagine that you are a farmer. Where you would plant your crops? What if the earth gets so dry, it just starts crumbling away! How would you even get to the house on that hill?
There’s a dried up riverbed on the right and some green grass growing up there by the farmhouse. Look at the windmill and find something or someone underneath it. Aw aw, that barn on the left looks as though it’s been blown sideways by the wind.
Notice the weather in this painting. The sun is peeking through the clouds, but imagine what would happen if it rained a lot, even for a few days. Think how the colors in this painting would change!
What would it be like if you lived on this farm? Imagine how different life here might be.
