Bold and beautiful.

Beautiful watercolour Michael. Love those deep shadows and the wet in wet areas especially.....even your pesky sheep look just right.

Lovely place dentdale and a super painting

Lovely sky & great definition with those rich deep shadows.

Thank you all for those kind comments. My sheep drawing needs improvement; I think the trick is to paint them small enough to convince the viewer they might be but not so large as to give the game away that they really look more like bison!

Michael Trask says: 'Yes, they are meant to be sheep! I painted the sky then sketched farm buildings before covering them with a varied sienna wash. Next the green pasture before adding deep shadow on buildings and grassy slopes and painting dark stone wall on left. Painted trees behind and to left of barn wet-in-wet merging them into dark shadow on bank. Darkened shadow in ruts and lastly painted those pesky sheep! Fun to do and a good exercise in laying down deep shadows to create a feeling of light'
