A Herd of Cows in a Water Meadow at Shop, near Bude. 'Daffodil and Friends.'
An open edition giclee print. 16 x 12 inches approximately.
I painted this scene in a water meadow by the hamlet of Bush which is near Bude and Stratton. My Golden Retriever, Bramble, accompanied me and enjoyed herself playing in the stream. It was Autumn and very damp so the cows had been taken off the fields. However my next door neighbour has drier land and his cattle stay out later than most, so I included them in the painting. Daffodilis the brown Friesian cow, which is unusual, but Bluebell and Snowdrop have the more common black and white markings.
