Leesa Padget, "Beef Cake"
This arresting profile of a cow is beautifully created with its very successful play of warm and cool colours.
The treatment of the subject, particularly the soft and atmospheric qualities, demands the viewers’ empathy.
The accomplishment of the artist is evident in the application and use of colours to portray an intimate interpretation of the subject.
The time of day and the surrounding environment is beautifully captured through the play of light on the cow’s head and back.
