Summer Pasture on the Westwood, Beverley

Medium: Oils on canvas

Original Size: 76 x 51

I really enjoy painting the cattle as they meander across the gently sloping hills of the Westwood just outside Beverley.

On this particular day it was extremely hot and they wandered in freedom from one cool shade to another.

This year they wandered in small groups with the more matronly cows looking after the younger ones.

Whilst I was sketching this group under the tree, one broke away from rest and acted like a scout.

It stood its ground and faced me, keeping one eye on the grass and the other on my easel!

With the choice of colours I tried to capture the lovely Summer light and the gorgeous russet colours of their hides.


Price: £700
