Rectangular format. Against a painterly turquoise background is the head and shoulders of a cow, facing right with its head turn a little towards the viewer but not so much that we see the eye on the other side. Rendered in pale purples and creams and grey-greens with underlying strokes of pink and orange and some details in teal and alizarin, he's a shaggy beast with an electric edge of white and yellow where his hair is backlit. Some of its lower shoulder is in shadow of dark blue with lighter straggles hanging down over it and some purple drips deliberately running down into it. Pink inside the far backlit ear, and dark blue inside the near shadow side ear. Signed Liam Daly.

The largest of tonight’s paintings.  The 2nd in what now seems to be a series, this painting has been in progress for a few years. Like the first cow it’s another long hairy yoke with a great face. And like the first cow it’s probably a bullock. There were a couple of such creatures in the field opposite a cottage I stayed in once and I’ve been planning their paintings ever since. Anyway, this is what happens when a cow eats Ready Brek. Naturally backlit. I think he looks great from across the room – as he is right now.

If you’d like to buy this painting shout at me publicly or privately before anyone else does. I’ll then check all the channels to see who was first and privately contact that person to make payment arrangements – which will be by bank transfer or cash. A reminder that more details about how this sale of paintings is working are available on my website:
