Big Red

15 x 5 inches Oil on wood panel £160 framed Sold.

After painting down in the harbour at Lynmouth , it was a joy to go up onto Countisbury Hill and paint back along the coast, looking west. The sun was slipping low, basking the hills in soft light, and the sea in a sparkley, yellow shimmer. The Devon Red cattle munched their way across the fields in front of my easel, the tops of their hairy coats, lit up with a gorgeous , reddy orange rim light.

Springtime in Devon at it's best!
