Rugged Beauty


'Morag' is an acrylic painting of a beautiful highland cow.  In this piece I have embraced a looser, more expressive style by using texture paste and thick layers of paint.  A palette knife was key to achieving a rugged, dishevelled look to the hair.

Morag was inspired  by my passion for drawing and painting large animals.  I am often commissioned to paint dogs and cats in my traditional realistic style but standing at the easel instead of sitting gives me the opportunity to express myself more freely.

In bringing Morag to life I aimed to captivate the viewer to portray the size and beauty of these amazing animals.
