These ladies are down the road from me. Looking cozy and huddled on a blustery day.
For the larger work, I'm not sure if I'll go tighter or more painterly. This is about 14x17 on hardboard. Some drybrush for texture.

Derek, I always look forward to your paintings. This is beautiful, and the details are outstanding. That chilly, glowing sunlight really gives a feel of a cold day. The cattle have such personalities - they look content and a little drowsy. Fantastic work!

Derek, that is wonderful. The light and shadow are perfect and certainly make it feel cold.

My oh my, this is amazing. I love the detail and country feel. My neighbor used to raise Herefords when I was a kid. Brings back lots of good memories.

Hi there Derek , old friend. You are one of my favourite painters and this beautiful pastoral work fills me with joy. Cant stop looking at all the nuances of light and shade and of course colour.
