This oil painting of a cow and calf are shown depicted sitting in a field at Throop, which is an outer part of the suburbs of Bournemouth, UK. It is based on a photograph taken on a slightly frosty morning. I don’t usually paint in a square format but happened to have seen the blank canvas at a good price at a shop, and purchased it to use at a later date. The square format adds to an unusual composition. The painting of the cow was quite successful and surprisingly not to taxing to do. It is painted in oils on a 16″ × 16″ canvas.
