Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Unstoppable

Or Unstoppabull

17 days into the new year and only one painting completed

Senneliers and Van Goghs on Clairefontaine Pastelmat, 16" x 12", no references:



And some closeups:





The bull is a Parthenaise and they are massive. I've accidentally made the man a bit too big in comparison, even though this was my second attempt. Parthenaise are a double muscled beef breed and the bulls generally weigh in at around 1300kg. I think they are beautiful and one of the most manly looking of all animals

The numbers were done by painting white Sennelier really thickly on to rubber stamps.

Of course!

Very exciting painting, Sarah. You have done justice to this beautiful bull, showing both the muscles as well as motion.

Your bottom closeup could almost be its own painting. The flying hooves over the numbers could tell a story. Do the numbers have any meaning? They make me think of big agriculture, the impersonal aspect of it all. The red background adds to the power.

A little masterpiece, IMO. Love it!

Re: Unstoppable

Thank you very much, guys!

Thanks, Raizes, but I don't like to submit nudes to the challenges - don't want to put people off browsing them
