Framed locally in a stunning, classic matte black wood frame with an off-white double thickness mount, this original cow painting is ideal for bringing the freshness of the countryside to your home.

A Good Natter depicts three friendly dairy cows with their heads together ready to gossip! Inspired by the herds of cows that surround Kathryn’s rural studio in County Down, this sweet-natured herd is captured in muted shades of grey-blue, highlighted with dashes of yellow and accentuated by flashes of genuine gold and silver leaf. A riot of greens dapples the surroundings, suggesting a lush pasture for these curious faces to graze and explore.

What makes an original cow painting by Kathryn unique?

Kathryn uses a unique pouring technique to create her paintings, which creates a contact-free approach to making her artwork.  Black ink is mixed with gel to create a new material which offers a new and unusual finish.  The mix is poured from mid-air from an open neck bottle – much like pouring honey onto toast or olive oil onto bread.  The finish is a textured, glossy image set against a smooth white board.

With no sketch underneath the painting, this freeform technique allows Kathryn to create truly original, organic pieces that are full of life and energy.  The result is captivating and often evocative of how we feel about the subject in our minds.  It is this ‘feeling’ that Kathryn strives to achieve through her work that gives it such resonance with collectors far and wide.
