Highlander Multi Terrain Camouflage -...
"Austin" Austin is a young British Longhorn Bull I saw at the Woodhall Spa Country Show. I loved those polished horns and hairy temples and couldn't resist painting him.
"Benjamin" Benjamin is a beutiful dapple grey horse owned by my friend. He is gorgeously handsome and very good at posing so I had to paint him - I loved his subtle colours and wanted to paint him almost in monotone but not quite - a challenge but I've enjoyed it.
"Ebony 2" Ebony is a mixed breed beef cow from near Wragby - she has featured in a couple of my paintings as she is both beautiful and distinctive with her jet black coat and white tuft.
Lilac88 is a painting of a Longhorn Cow who lives at Tetford near where I live in the Lincolnshire Wolds. She lives in a herd which produces speciality beef for the local butcher. A very friendly lady she was happy to let me scratch her head and wander round her field.
"Master Huntsman South Wold Hunt" This was a rare opportunity to really get the bright colours out to paint such a vibrant jacket. The contrast of its vibrancy against the subtle but undulating shades of the horse was a good challenge and I think the background gives the impression of woodland without detracting.
