Bull Inspired by Sorian Trip


After a hiatus, this is my new painting: Sorian Bull. Maybe I'll get a better name for it. But it was inspired by my trip to Soria with a great tour called Spanish Footsteps: http://www.spanishfootsteps.com/

I saw imagery like this at the Numancia Museum in Soria. It's from a Celt-Iberian Design. I added design elements and color. The funny thing was that I spent hours at this museum, sketching the designs. I ran out of steam near the end, where these bull images were. I thought to myself: I'll find them in a book or I'll Google them. But really: there was very little to see online and no books that I could find with the images. Guess I'll just have to go back to Soria.

Hi, I'm a freshman in college & I'm currently in Spanish 3010 (conversational spanish). We've been studying Spanish art & I just wanted to let you know that this is such a great piece of art. It looks exactly like many of the pieces that we're studying in class! Keep up the great work! :)
