Cows are such docile, contented creatures, which is why I really enjoy using them as subjects in my work. This large, mixed media piece was produced in inks, water colour pencils, acrylics and ink pen.
The gorgeous colours are applied in many layers, creating patches of intense vibrancy and washes of subtler tones.
The scene itself is serene and to me at least, brings a strong element of calm to the picture- as if the grazing animal portrayed is not fazed by its onlookers, but inquisitive. This is really reflected in the cow's eyes, calm and observant.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
