Artist Caroline Shotton – pictures lie, cows do not!

We wanted to make the point that sometimes the images that are press released (in advance of the item arriving in the gallery) don’t do the pictures justice and the finished artwork is often much much nicer in person!


(Press release image ‘Two & A Calf’)

This was particularly the case when Caroline Shotton released the 4 limited edition box canvas’s
‘Moo Too,’
‘Two And A Calf,’
‘2 Pint 4’
‘Meet The Famooly’
in Autumn last year.

Above is the press release image for ‘Two & Calf’ by Caroline Shotton. The image looks really quite flat, mostly variation of red and with no embellishments.

Now let’s looks at some camera images we took of the actual painting:


(picture we took of ‘Two & A Calf’)

Take a closer look at the actual ‘jewels’ on the box canvas, on this picture they are yellow and on the other titles in the series they where various colours, I remember one was this amazing shade of purple!


(notice the stuck on yellow jewels, and stuck on fabric hearts)


(notice the finish on the white, starting from above the cow’s noses)

Even the faces of the cows are actually embellished and are raised with actual paint work, this is not a flat off the printer finish but a much more special, lively image that looks like it’s actually come directly out of Caroline’s studio

thank you
