Charging Bulls


Here is a very large scale piece I did for a local Tapas Bar called The Bowl Full in Lincoln. The request was to paint a scene of stampeding, charging bulls from a face first view. A challenge in itself as nobody seems to have been able to get close enough in front of a herd of charging bulls to take a photograph! So working from imagination as much as possible I took to the job with an enthusiastic approach and a very loose hand. In order to portray strength and power in abundance I applied the paints with the same physical, expressive strokes myself (a technique I researched relentlessly towards my dissertation for my degree) and hoped that what came across was the same urgency, movement and power to compliment charging bulls.


This piece is now installed in its new home The Bowl Full šŸ™‚
