This is Barney. He is a young Charolais. A colourful character that oozes personality.
I took this photo while out for a walk one day during lockdown. I spotted him staring back at me in the field as I was trying to juggle three kids and their bikes and scooters on the road. I couldn't figure out by his stare if he felt pity for me or if he was trying to reassure me that "all would be ok, enjoy the chaotic moment and just breathe". Either way his presence had a calming effect on me and I managed to capture this pose on my phone. So when I was painting him I wanted to try to convey the character behind this beautiful creature.
