To access any field you have to use its objects reference to access that fields value..

you can do something like this,

@api.multi #in case of api.multi decorator

def do(self):

    for obj in self:

        print obj.task_field # here is your field

@api.one # in case of api.one decorator

def do(self):

       print self.task_field # here is your field

when I do your example, it doesn't find my field task_field
