    bovine coobs? Geez Maddy, not sure where your heading with these but lets hope the meat boxes don’t land on your head rofl….now you got me going…lol.

    But I must say in honesty, I love your clear concept and beautiful crisp colours…I actually thought it was watercolour! not bad affect that

  • hehe tahnja, its too late, ol’ meat head is back in town – well linguistically speaking up here a ‘cow’ is called a ‘coo’ and so merged with cubes the ‘coob’ was born – thats the title anyways, where the image came from i do not know : / thanks for the appreciation, it basically is watercolour, for i watered my acrylics right down, applying many layers of transparent colour.

    I love your coobs! This is so 3D – very clever work Matthew. These look like Friesian coobs. Maybe you could do a series with further works such as Jersey Coobs and Hereford Coobs! Oh sorry Matthew – I get carried away sometimes! I really love this.

  • hey lynda, thanks a lot thats a great idea with the different breeds, i used fresian right enough for thst distinctive black and white , thanks
