As I viewed the engraving, “The Sheep of his Pasture” by English artist, Edward Calvert, I was reminded of a summer I spent in Normandy walking in the fields and meadows in and around Quinéville. “Lazy Afternoon (deux vaches dans un pré)” is the result of those walks. I was glad of Calvert’s reminder both for the beauty that is in Calvert’s engraving and for the opportunity it gave me to make a small rural print. I chose to use the Chine Collé as atmosphere – to help create the feeling of a lazy summer afternoon.
