Street scene with sheep

Location: UK

Medium: Watercolour

Date: 1900s

Signature: Arthur Hammond

The shepherd driving his sheep has movement as they approach the spectator. The foreshortening adds to the effect. The red sandstone cottages with their thatched roofs have a historic feel and the human touch is added by the figure sitting on a bench by the front door. The artist, in this early picture, demonstrates his skill with aerial perspective.
