Caprine Backend

I started this work with the intention producing a painting and not a picture so I thought that the goats backside rather than the front view would be "different".  I also chose a limited pallet to blend it all together and lastly decided to stop when I had achieved what I set out to do and not "finish the picture".

Watercolour 40cm x 30cm

"Nigel. this is one of the best animal paintings i have seen in some time. you put down only what was necessary and managed to capture truer goat nature. congratulations are in order."  - Debbi Chan.
