Farmyard Geese Oil on canvas 16″ x 16″
The diagonal composition leads the eye inevitably to the action of the front geese who are moving slightly differently in the summer sunshine. Trevor pays particular attention to the forms and behaviour pattern of the gaggle spreading out in their field from the enclosed pen above. The colours in this canvas evoke summer sunshine in the English countryside and there is a sense of heat in the atmosphere. Cooler blues and greens in the distance and then to warmer yellows and oranges in the foreground. the line of geese have created a flattened path in the surrounding grasses.
