Graphite on Canvas


'Hmmph' Oil on Canvas 100x100cm

Artist's comment:

'Hmmph’ spends her days wandering over the Oxford fields. Fields that owned by the Colleges and farmed by the fabulous Watson family - second generation tenant farmers that I spend a glorious day with a few summers ago. ‘Hmmph’ was amongst their picture perfect and very people friendly small mixed dairy herd.

I was taken around the farm and in their battered Land Rover and  ‘Hmmph’ was the first to push her warm face through the open window. Well, she’s a Star - and, of course, I had to paint her to capture the simple warmth and inquisitive charm of this sensational beastie.'

John achieved overnight success in the 90’s for his bold paintings of cows; a subject which has remained his single focus ever since and earned him international recognition as ‘the cow man’. Light is often used to accentuate composition and backgrounds are ever changing. His fresh approach to each work has established a growing collection of powerful work. John has exhibited widely throughout the UK and internationally.

This painting is framed in the artist's signature bespoke black wooden frame. Please allow approx 6.5cm to each side of the 100x100cm canvas size.
