A mist gradually reveals a field with grazing sheep

Grazing sheep:
Countryside mist

This small countryside misty oil painting has lots of atmosphere. Walking down the lane on one of those damp but rapidly brightening mornings, you can feel the freshness in the air. A sheep raises its head, still munching on grass to see who passes, unphased because many people walk this way.

While this landscape painting is small, it does not skimp on detail, effect or impact. Created entirely in the studio, it was one of those spontaneous works drawing on a memory of some distant moment when all is quiet.

The blue sky is fresh and the green grass nourished by the damp, creating the promise of a lovely day. The mist is already receding as the sun rises and begins to warm the day
