Charolais Cattle Grazing 2 , Central France

Charolais Vee graast 2, Bessais le Fromental, Cher, Frankrijk
oil on canvas
30 x 40 cm
painted on location - 2 Aug 2011

Same field as the last posting, yet some differences. It was painted more or less at the same time of day, yet the cattle are arranged differently, and the view of the feild is slightly seen from further away. It was not easy for me to capture the correct porportions of the cattle. As I refuse to work from pictures, I had to quickly paint them in, and beleive you me, more cows were erased or reworked than you actually see on the finished work.

I just love this! We have cattle next door, but mostly have horses in our fields. There's something charming about a field of cows though. Lovely work!
