Black Beauty

This is a beautiful painting, Julia. So lively. I also like your choice of colour: complementary, so that the colour of the cow jumps off the page. Lovely work on the background too!

Really wonderful painting ,i like it alot , congrats for painting on home page!!!

Done a very good piece of work here, Julia. Nose leather is so well painted, and I like the background you have set her against.

Just seen your work on homepage...Congrats are in order.!!

WOW! fantastic......strong but gentle presence...and such delicate detail....:))

Thank you all for your kind comments - you are so encouraging and it is much appreciated.

This just jumped off the page at me - and it was so obviously one of yours. It must be the eyes as that is a part which attracted me straight away and you have done a fab job on them. I like to combination of watercolour and pastels - a good marriage and one which I think you could try on other portraits. Really lovely work, Julia!

I love the colours you have chosen for this lovely work Julia.

Hang on Studio Wall

I seem to be fascinated with cows at the moment! It must be the eyes? Started this one as a watercolour but just had to go in with the pastels.
