Ain’t Cows Great! Their doleful eyes and interminable munching, their hook bones sticking out through their patterned, coloured or furry hides like clothes props.

One of my patrons said ‘More Cows Please’ and am happy to oblige. I have done a number of these small studies in watercolour and here are the latest ones: (£55 framed plus p&p)

       Little Red Bull                           Cock an Ear                       Blonde Cow                            Curious

The sunlight on the plump back sides of the sheep in Holman Hunt’s ‘Our English Coasts’ is always uppermost in my mind when looking at these animals.  I like their indignant but suspicious air, the way their lambs frolic and gambol.  The first painting is Ellerburn on the Yorkshire Moors, the second and third are sheep we came across high up on the Penine Way in Yorkshire.

Also shown - White Horses at the Gin Trap Inn, Ringstead.                                                                                                                                                                                                          (Plus one cow on a hill!)

There are many muddy mucky smart pigs living all over Norfolk in piggy towns made up of round roofed huts and straw bales.  They are inquisitive, happy and fun.  Great characters to paint as can be seen by ‘Muddy Nose’ to the left.

Two Saddlebacks; At the Trough; Black and pink Pigs I and II (prints available); The back of beyond
