Countdown Painting 4. “Young Bull Paddling” 8″ x 8″ Standard (.75″) edged canvas painted with Artist quality acrylic.
I often come across cows paddling at the side of the canal. This time it was a young bull that I chose to paint as part of my countdown series.
To celebrate the VMA open studios 2017, I painted 10 small 8″ x 8″ paintings and numbered them from 10 down to 1 as a countdown to the event. This is the first one of the series.
It is varnished for protection with a low sheen varnish.
The paint on this picture is built up in layers. It includes gold paint and my trademark swirls. Unfortunately the gold doesn’t show up very well in the photos. The paint is carried on down the sides of the canvas so you can get away without framing, but all of these little canvasases can look amazing in the right frame..
