Animals, Bull, Jez Eden

Celtic Bull - Jez
Acrylics, Framing added on Photoshop
This handsome fellow was inspired by a photograph of a Celtic stone carving.  Just the outlines of the bull were incised into an ancient slab of rock about 1700 years ago.

I drew this freely with a Pitt pen in Sanguine colour on watercolour paper.  I made some alterations and additions, added the colour and decoration, and created my own background to turn it into an ancient wall painting in my imaginary prehistoric cave.

  4. I love the little decorations and details you added. Isn't it amazing to think that there was never a time when people weren't trying to make art from what they saw?
