The Old Fergie

Watercolour, 18 cm x 26 cm


An old Ferguson tractor. They were very popular around the middle of the last Century, and many older farmers must have fond memories of them. There are still a few in occasional use around where I live.

I really like this painting Keith. I'm particularly struck by your palette which is very reminiscent of James Fletcher-Watson, one of my favourite artists. Superb work!!

Thanks John, there was a time when I was very influenced by James Fletcher-Watson's work. I use a different range of colours now, but I suppose there are still some similarities, especially in the preference for earth pigments.
