Yellow Bucket In The Calf Shed

Fine Art Calf Print

The yellow detail dominates in this depiction from the calf-shed.


It contrasts delightfully with the dark, and dreary background.


The impasto effect in areas such as the farmyard yellow bucket make us feel as if we can reach out and touch it.


This ‘double calf’ depiction is impactful on any wall space because of the strong colours and composition.


A very ‘ordinary’ moment on the farm has been brought to life and captured in Una’s typically sensitive and observational manner.

The story behind...

Yellow Bucket In The Calf Shed

I layer on paint, thin it down using turpentine and sometimes pour it directly on the canvas.

‘Happy’ accidents can happen.

And knowing what to ‘keep’ and what to continue to resolve is the key.

Occasionally only a slight suggestion of paint is needed to represent an eye.., an ear, nose or leg.

If I put the time and thought in, I trust that a certain serendipity will occur.

I hope it did here and that composition and colour placement allows the viewer’s eye to move pleasingly over this scene.

Huddled together in the dark winter shed, the calves almost merge into one another.

Oil paint seeps from one to the other while the viewer’s eye slows down to consider that vividly coloured and textured bucket.
