Physical description

Landscape in oils created with broad brush strokes and minimal detail. Some sheep in the expanse of countryside. There is a thin white ground and the canvas appears to have been commercially prepared. Displayed within a hand made wooden fascia frame with a modelled profile. The frame has no rebate and the method of attachment to the painting is not obvious but it is probably nailed. There is no backboard.
