This landscape with grazing cattle captures the immediacy of the sensations created by nature. The watercolour exploits its special ability to convey light and space. Executed on the spot the composition possesses great freshness, colour and atmosphere. The dominant tree is rich in colour and form. The cattle have been rapidly drawn with the brush with direct watercolour creating movement and spontaneity. Knighton-Hammond uses the sky to dramatic effect – the light across the landscape and the arcing shaft of light on the right which surely will soon become a colourful rainbow.
