This week, I take you through a real-time demo of a painting of four black cattle. These 4 steer were encountered in a field on the outskirts of Exeter in Devon, Uk and I was struck by the multitude of colors in their gleaming coats along with the ever-changing patterns they created as the herd moves around. Cow paintings (well these are steer actually) are one of my favourite subjects, I hope that you enjoy the video!
