Just completed this commission of a Highland Cow and having used a mix of reds and blacks she resulted in a chocolatey look to her hair so I’ve temporarily christened her Coco. Bit of varnish, attach the loops and cord and off she goes to her new home 🐮🎨
This painting, one of my favourites, has just sold at the Garrion Bridges Art & Antique centre. I hope she’s settling into her new home 🐮
Following a change of mind with one of my paintings, I recently took the plunge to swap a safe sky blue colour for a bold purple (my favourite!) colour. I think it makes the subject – a hunk of English Bull Terrier – ‘pop’ forward now. I love subtle, gentle background colours, but just now and again I like to go a bit bananas! See what you think. 🤓
This is similar to a previous painting of mine, but I love the composition (and the model!) so decided to paint her again from a slightly different angle and a reverse/mirror image. I haven’t come up with a title yet…suggestions would be very welcome.
Following the sale of my big canvas (well, big for me anyway) ‘Stag In Water’, I thought I’d see if another biggie would be of interest to someone. This ‘heilan coo’ is acrylic on a 60x60cm canvas and was great fun to paint in all her shagginess!
“Isla” will be ‘hoofing it’ down to my display wall at the Garrion Bridges in the next day or two.
Just about to pop this mini version of a black Highland Cow painting I did last year, into the post to New York, to take part in the Twitter Art Exhibition. All entries have to be a postcard size and it was good fun to scale this one down…mini-moo!
Recently completed commission of a little sweetheart, a Border Terrier called ‘Mac’ ❤️ Acrylic on linen canvas
