‘River Dove’ Mill Dale’ Derbyshire

Landscape oil painting of cattle watering in the River Dove in Mill Dale Derbyshire

‘River Dove’ Mill Dale Derbyshire 

Oil on canvas 14″ x 20″

Paintings from walks I’ve done.

I did this walk along the River Dove some time ago and at the time was minus my camera. I don’t normally paint from other peoples photography, on this occasion because it evoked the time of the walk and don’t suppose I shall do the Mill Dale walk again I made an exception and put it to canvas, the only difference being I decided to turn the cows round in my painting, I hope he won’t mind!
