Immediate Results in a Pastel and Charcoal Drawing of a Bull

I have been working on the parts for collage art lately, but in between these preparations, I’ve taken time to make drawings. Pastel and charcoal drawings are good for quick results. And sometimes I just need to have quick results - especially on days when my attention span seems to diminish. The pastel and charcoal drawing above is a revision of an earlier drawing from life of a bull in a pasture. I abstracted the bull and flipped the head around to better center the beast on the paper. This drawing now rounds out a set of four drawings of bulls, the earlier ones being the yellow bull, the black bull and the blue/violet bull. Bully as the British would say I believe.
