Black Cows Watercolor Painting
Painting - Mixed Media
'Welcome to the Edge' - inspired by a herd of black cattle in a field near Exeter canal in Devon (next to the Double Locks pub). I started this painting by using a sharpie marker pen to sketch in the two steer as outlines created using a gestural approach. Next, I turned the painting through 90 degrees and painted in the sky along with patches of colour to mimic the hedgerows, trees and field, These colors were applied using loose washes of watercolour that gradually made their way down (i.e. to the left) across the paper. Once dry, further applications of watercolor were used to paint the animals, focusing on the large shapes of light and shadow, Finally, a few touches of interactive acrylic were added.
