very nice abstract presentation! My crit is a small one but someone will notice the left hand cows horn touching the outline of the other cows head...in this instance I think it is a good thing...we follow it down and around the picture. There are three horns left, each points us out of the painting. But the pattern, the abstraction of black and white, and the hypnotic eye (second cow) hold us in the work nicely. I really like this...I think your viewers will as well!

Hi, Very nice contrast and composition. My observation pertains to the light area in front of the bottom cow's snout. The light area is a bit distracting. Darkening this area will define the snout and pull the cow further into the foreground.

Thank you all so much.:clap:
Solidgadium I know what you mean. Only it's not my intention to define the cows snout. I like my paintings to be a bit estranging, They don't have to have depth in them. Just a play of form and colour. A mixture of figurative and abstract. I appreciate your suggestion though:)
