Pastel on Colourfix Paper (grey)

Found this one in the archives! It was just a smudgy study of some Hereford cattle who were obliging enough to stand relatively still!

I am a pastel artist living in country Victoria, Australia. My subjects vary, ranging from landscapes, portraiture, animal studies, figurative, life drawing, still life and I find the challenge of painting water particularly enjoyable.

    What a fantastic work of art Lynda. I like how you’ve got the whole scene in similar tones to the cows and the same kind of bands. Awesome.

  • What a fabulous comment Don! It was very messy and scribbly really! I did it during a camping trip when I came across these very quiet cattle, so I got the pastels to work using only a few (probably 8 or 10) sticks of colour.

    Beautiful study, love the way you use color!

  • Thanks heaps Cindy. I love the way YOU use colour too! As I said to Don (above) this was just a bit of scribbling and smudging, and never intended as a finished work, but I DID put it in a frame and someone actually bought it!

    Beautiful work Lynda! I agree with Cindy!

  • Hello there Sandra. Did this when Pete and I went on that trip to the Howqua a few years ago. They were very quiet cattle and wandered around our campsite the whole time we were there.

  • Thanks for the lovely comment Dayonda. Thanks also for the suggestions, but I don’t think this really fits the Islands of the World group, and I think the other group is more geared towards photos.
