New lambs

The first lambs appeared here in early February, poor things- just in time for some very cold weather. The oil paint took about 3 weeks to dry because the studio has been so cold. The paintings are for a couple who live in Germany. Many of my Austrian and German friends are fans of Britain’s sheep, maybe because you just don’t see so many sheep around in most of Europe except in the mountains.

The other more autumnal coloured painting is of the Forest of Bowland. I think the sheep are either Swaledale or Rough Fell.
