Toro Negro 14 painted with Australian earth

A black spanish bull in full speed.

The painting was made with red and purple ochre in acrylic medium, in combination with acrylic paints. The result is a very lively and structured surface, due to the characteristics of the pure earth pigments.

Toro Semental painted with Australian earth

A perfect combination, the intense energy of the fighting bull and the rich hues of Australia’s colourful soil.

This Bull is built and painted with the pigments I recently collected around my South-Australian studio and some (minimal)  acrylics.

The structure of the different earth-pigments combined with a specific binder produces a texture quit different from oil-paint.
