" Rural outlook"

I love these mixed media pieces with ink, Mike, it gives them an almost printed look, especially with a limited palette. Lovely composition and colour in this one.

This is so good Mike, I particularly like the way you have painted the sheep

Great painting, with such a limited pallet.

This is super, Mike, love that barbed wire and the sheep ... very Moore-ish!

my thanks for the kind comments, For 14 years I had a close connection with a beef /sheep farm - even "owned" 23 cows so had close and personal contacts handling and working the animals. As a leather technician it was a case of seeing the raw material close up and kicking. The cows kick harder than the sheep!!!.

Excellent colours and combination of techniques. Like this very much.

So good, Mike. Fascinating.
