Another one finished in my “Out of India” series. The cows you see on the streets of India often with horns painted and beads around their neck are considered holy. I could not help but admire their qualities – placid and stoic but also determined and persistent – they purposefully go about their business and all of India seems to swarm and swerve around them going about their own business. I love their wonderful faces and their big ears – they begged to be drawn. This one was found in statue form in a temple in the Shiva Temple complex in Bateshwar. This mixed media artwork is A4 in size (210 x 297 mm or 8.3 x 11.7 inches). I will post it in response to the Documented Life Project 2015 prompt of Inks – before the ink is dry. The background was done by spraying with inks and shutting the page and rubbing before the ink was dry – can you see the mirror image splodges?
