Glossop sheep

Oil on hardboard 8" x 8"

I don't find landscapes easy but we are surrounded here by the foothills of Derbyshire and Yorkshire (this is Derbyshire)so now and again I think I ought to give it a try.

Wonderful, Sheila. Love the color and the monumental, abstracted shapes. Evokes an immediate emotional reaction.

Thank you Don. I always saw these hills as solid and "monumental" so I'm really glad you interpreted it that way.

Great sense of far distances!! Looks like some places I've been in western Ireland...I felt an immediate connection to this vast territory! Lovely!!

Roxanne, thank you for your comments. I'm glad it reminds you of Ireland (which I have never visited although it is just a short journey). Must go there some day.

The colors in this one and the one above are especially appealing to me. I like the suggested details.

I am just getting to know your blogs. A lot of the city scenes are really interesting too.

admirable job with all the layers and greens and blues. Love the tiny sheep giving it scale.
