Art Description

Drawing: Charcoal, Pencil, Pastel and pencil on Paper.

I've always loved cows. I own a dog, that, ironically, looks sort of like a cow, and maybe that was why I was drawn to her.

Since a teenager when I grabbed my first Nikon F5 and took it to the fields around my house I was mesmerized by cows. There is a deep curiosity of strangers and a very social nature in cows. Look through the youtube videos of pet cows and you'll quickly understand the strange ability cows have to behave just like any other pet.

I enjoy working in charcoal and pencil as my style lends itself to the free working movement of the medium. I begin, as is apparent in this piece, by filling out the form with expressive strokes; attempting to understand not only form, but connection with my subject. As the drawing progresses, I find shading and form, and along with this the connection becomes more personal.

I leave exploratory marks visible to show the progress of the drawing. Erasing these marks seems disingenuous as if I am a more accomplished artist than I am. It would also hide much of the decisions and indecisions that make the piece more unique.

Hope you enjoy this piece!
