Garishly Pink Cow

At one of the workshops I recently attended, the instructor was teaching us about using different ground colours and how they can bring impact in your painting (this is the base colour - for example I like warm orange). The instructor (who was from another province) commented that she couldn't understand why so many West Coast artists use such bright, GARISH (said with disgust) colours, and the worst offender was pink.... I took this as inspiration and just had to give it a try  I love the results!
