‘Portrait of a Hereford Bull’ (2)

I was approached a while ago by a lady that came into the gallery whose father was in the process of opening a new high class Inn and restaurant in Cheshire. Some three years later she appeared again with her father in the gallery and asked me if I would paint the Inn sign and a number of original paintings and a range of Limited Edition prints for the inside of the Inn. This is the first of a selection of cattle that I was commissioned to do. Paintings of an Angus Bull, Red Poll Bull and a Galloway Bull will be posted at a later date.
