So I've created this cloud of smog using Particular. My friend is a super hero character who is supposed to blow this cloud away, and his head is moving in a sweeping right to left motion. I've tried messing with wind settings but this moves the entire particle field in a certain wind direction, where I need it to fan out radially. Spherical field kinda gives me what I want but the particles stop moving at the end of the sphere. Any ideas on how I can achieve a sweeping wind motion?

Here is a crude representation of what I'm trying to accomplish with this effect.

The sphere creates a field that the smoke will stay away from but it doesn't actually give it any velocity.
