Original Watercolours and Drawings

The artist will be happy to supply any further information you require about any of these original paintings

Please bear in mind that I have taken these photographs myself and that as the pictures were already glazed and framed they could be a little sharper and that there may be  some reflection problems 

Colour - also remember that the colour accuracy of the website images is subject to a number of factors, the photography and the colour balance of your own screen can make such a difference.

Framing- Frames for the originals are each described with the outside measurement.
The Mounts are nearly always Double Mounts and the ''Window' size refers to the area cut out   within the mount that shows the painting. If need be frames and mount can always be changed to suit the puchaser's requirements.

Copyright - All images are copyright Michael Cooper and his estate after he eventually goes to the great studio above.

The sizes of the website images are limited to prevent pirate copying of my work,
please contact me should you be interested in a picture for further more detailed information

ID: Curly Top

Curly Top

This study of a Hereford clearly shows the swirl of hair between the eyes.Now one farming customer maintained that the position of this swirl, higher, or lower up the head indicated the animal's temperament. good or bad. Sadly he could not remember which was which, a great help if you have just been trampled on by an heavty gurt great beast..

Later after most customers had denied ever having heard of this folklore a client from Wiltshire said that every one knew that surely , the higher up the head the swirl, the more highly strung the animal.
