What a "masculine" piece! Good colors; like the orange against the brown; nice lines; good forms; like how you did the shadow; it almost looks real; the horns color contrasts and stands out well. Good work on the piece. Thanks for sharing. Take care.

I love this painting of the bull with its simple bi chromatic coloration. The two colors play off of each other well, the image does an excellent job of conveying the title, visually pleasant, well executed. Just nice..Good luck in the London display!

This is an excellent painting, Neil, showing the magnificent bull. I'm sure it will make a perfect display with your photographs in the restaurant. I love the colours you used in this. Wonderful use of light and shade - I love how you've shown the undulations in the bull's skin. Excellent detail. Great composition. Suzanne

The vermillion is an excellent accent for the background. The bull is well drawn and amazingly well painted, that it borders photographic quality. Love all the textures and ripples in the bulls skin. His attitude also comes through it this painting. It's magnificent.

Cool,Neil!
That's a very attractive portrait painting of this large Bovine creature,my friend!
The bright Orange/Red background contrasts nicely with the darkly colored animal!
'Good Show'! : )

This is an impressive work of art, beautifully structured bull, with excellent definition in his skin and muscular build, nice application of his color and the tonal variations, I especially like that you chose a red background to showcase this beautiful black bull, and appreciate the shadow giving this a realistic appearance, your creation of his eye brings him to life. Nice rendering of his horns. The fact that this is a Controversial subject , does not take away from this wonderful display of your artistic skill! This is beautiful work and I'm positive it will be appreciated by the patrons at the restaurant.well presented!

You did an excellent job portraying this magnificent animal. The detail in his face and horns is amazing. A display of pure, raw power, yet with gentle eyes. Thank you for the notes, as well. I'm glad they ended this 'sport'.

Comment from Dick Lee Shia


Excellent choice of subject.
An interesting initial impact.
I've read that bulls are color blind and what they see is only gray...

The shadow lends a 3-dimensional effect but it makes it appear close to a seamless vermillion backdrop in a studio...

Creative concept. Innovative approach. Imaginative presentation.
An impressive artwork rendition.
Colorful creation with excellent strokes & textures.
Good compositional style. Great overall impact!

hanks for sharing...
