Mold: Little Yellow Jacket
Color: Purple and Gold
Medium: Acrylics, Liquitex Dioxazine Purple
Status: Painted 2004 and Sold Mar 2004
This little guy was a blast to paint, but a pain to photograph! He’s now a deep glossy purple with ‘natural’ white markings, gold hooves, horns, eyes, tiny gold dots for stars.
The dioxazine purple hates the camera, as always, and the stars got lost in the glare from the glossy finish. You’ll just have to take my word on how awesome he was in person!
I also repainted the base, since it had the old bull’s name, but I didn’t paint the cowboy– I think the bulls look better without riders.
Zodiac’s the only CollectiBulls I’ve done so far, but I’m definitely open to doing a few more fantasy bulls if time (and budgets) allow. Much like my foray into the dog molds, this was a fun break from the usual horse-shaped-objects.
