The artist as opportunist

cows sheltering

"Sheltering" by Helen White

I chanced upon these cows in August during a walk at Silchester and the whole composition, the way the two cows were standing looking back over their shoulders towards me, was so irresistible that I took a series of shots on my iPhone, just in case I could use them.

 

 

Out of several shots taken, there was just one that stood out from the rest, with the potential to be turned into a drawing. The original was marred by poorish lighting and barbed wire but with a bit of tweaking on Photoshop it was more than useable and the outcome was this wet-and-dry soluble pencil drawing which I’ve just uploaded onto my website – Limited Edition giclee prints will be available to purchase soon!
