New Zealand Connection

Last week I sent a painting of "Red Cows in Staffordshire" to New Zealand.  I did the initial sketches for this painting in November 2014 while I was in Dimmingsdale, acting as volunteer warden at the Youth Hostel there.  I took some photos, too.  (Though they rarely capture the magic of what I see!)

 I loved the dry stone walls which were full of gaps in them so  when the light was behind them, it almost looked like lace!

 There were lots of curious young cows in the fields.

Tree silhouettes on the skyline completed the picture.

I'm really delighted that Sue has commissioned another painting, this time of Lancashire, to add to her collection.  Watch this space!
