Painter Provoking The Bull

Acrylic  on paper

“I based this painting on a memory; standing in a field by a barded wire fence, sketching a bull on the other side. The bull kicked its hoof and I quickly left. I imagine it going the other way; a painter at an easel, deliberately antagonising a bull by painting his canvas red.”
