A bull wearing a crown of roses and a patterned costume


30cm x 30cm (approx 12β€³ x 12β€³)

Acrylic, gouache, watercolour and pastel on Arches 300gsm paper mounted to cradled panel

I was reading some stories from greek mythology and noticed how often a bull is a motif.
For this piece I wanted a lot of texture and pattern, reds and peach colours are prominent but there’s some turquoise underpainting for contrast.
