This is a large painting of a western scene previously done through a smaller study. In this painting my aim has been to depict a story with action, almost like to give the impression of a movie scene moving right-to-left following the two cowboys chasing the cattle while crossing the river. At the same time, the background is rather calm, with the bright summer day leaning towards dusk and the sky becoming more yellow as the sun already set behind the mountains hits it at an angle. The cowboys and cattle fill the left two-thirds of the painting giving the impression they are getting close to the edge of the painting. The closer blue mountain behind them seems like appearing from left as the movement progress, while the more distant mountain on the right is rather still. This, along with the yellow and brown grass close up getting bolder towards the right side of the painting, finally balance the overall painting.
