Comment from Monica Morrell


This is a wonderful image.
A work of art with great detail and action.
Great eye appealing colors. Bold and strong red and orange colors representing the big bold bull.
I am sure it was a spectacular adventure when you were a witness to the amazing bull fight.
I am glad you found your memorabilia and I am sure your display will be both interesting and fun.

Comment from Susan F. M. T.


Neil,
A beautiful painting of this magnificent black bull rearing up as it charges eyes wide it's coat glossy black it's shadow against the vermilion backdrop. Showing the beauty of this animal & to me the horrors of Bullfighting painfully killing just for the thrill it gives the onlookers. Created by your artist's eye for composition knowledge of the bull's anatomy & your ability to convey on your canvas what your eyes see. Very skilful brushwork beautiful choice blending & application of your colours in bringing this magnificent Bull to roaring life.
Susan

Comment from Renate-Bertodi


It is obvious that you have put a lot of effort into the paintings and the skin of the bull is really superb as are its legs and feet and head. I would have liked the bull to be further to the right, as there is a sort of unfinished feeling at not seeing the hind part. Superb work.

    Thank you, the structure with bull is on purpose as it shows him coming in from the frame as if he's entering the ring.The space in front gives him room to manoeuvre and gives the painting, hopefully, movement and depth .Thank you for your comments
Comment from Lynn R


I can feel the weight, power and strength of this bull, charging, being in command, the smell, and power all come through this painting. Very well done and very live like.

It is a lot of things I like about this painting. For example the red background with the great shadows, and also the feel of motion. I also Like the way the bull is entering the frame from the left.

The bull is painted paying very good attention to details and it is fine shadings and textures in the body. Smooth and accurate brush work, and good use of high lights.

The format and framing is working really well in my opinion, and it doesn't bother me at all that we don't see the full body of the bull. I think this is a great looking and well done painting Neil.

Comment from Brendaartwork18


I think this is quite stunning in its simplicity. The gorgeous red so well outlines the bull and so emotive of the feelings against bullfighting and indeed the actions of the 'sport'. The brushwork is awe inspiring. I love oils I think The colours are much more vibrant than other mediums. I am still a novice in their use. Best wishes for successful restaurant event. Thank you for sharing.
