This watercolour on canvas is of my favourite subject, a cow. You may never really look at cows, afterall we all know what they are. But if you look closely they have eyes which are far more beautiful than most front-page models and their whiskery nosey are as soft as velvet, and their individual personalities shine through.... So my cow paintings are done with the aim of sharing a little cow-love and to encourage better animal welfare.
The canvas is prepared with several coats of semi-absorbent ground. I use a deep edge canvas, so there is no need for framing and it is ready to hang. After it is finished it is sealed with multiple coats of matte varnish (archival, UV resistant), to protect the delicate watercolour and this means no glass is needed for protection. As with all watercolours please try not to hang it in direct sunlight, humid conditions or where there is strong heat.
