"Shadow" Acrylic 6x6
Acrylic 6x6 ( on board)
Took reference photographs of this pretty boy last week and managed to get myself bogged down doing it. Was most embarrassing for a seasoned country girl like me to end up well and truly stuck in the sheugh. Sheugh by the way, for you non Scots is a scottish word for a grass verge on a country road or a ditch. I should have known with all the rain we had been having it was going to be a bit soggy. Sunday morning, first thing, which meant there wasn't another living soul for miles around. Off course all the moos arrived at the gate for a look and a laugh, plus two wee accusing furball faces at the back window. After a few attempts trying to go back then forward with no traction either way I noticed a bundle of old feed bags. Just the ticket, stuffed them front and behind the wheel and prayed. Bit of a slither and I was on firm ground, not very clean mind you but free. Needless to say I won't be doing that again in a hurry lol.
Got some good photos though so all was not lost. And the end result is a nice wee painting for the moo collection. Quite sure this fella is an Aberdeen cross, though he might just be full Aberdeen.
Thanks for looking in.....
