A Lot of Bull

bull painting in progress 16 by 20 on paper ©Maria's Watercolor Art
The work in progress this week is "Dirty" the bucking bull.  He is a commissioned piece and he is quite fun to paint.  Trying not to make him too sweet.  I am pretty sure is quite a tough guy.

    1. Thank you Debbie! I do get a little adventurous with the color, but that is the beauty of watercolor, don't you think?!

  5. Maria-
    I am really loving this and cannot wait to see it finished- the colors are nice and he is kind of cute even if he is a tough guy!

    1. Thanks Sheryl! Always harder for me to paint larger pieces, but if I stop and take pictures with my phone at times, it helps me see better. I struggle with the cohesiveness of a larger painting.
