Stunning acrylic painting of El Matador. Vibrant textured colour will enhance any wall bringing the outside in. This painting will bring all of the splendid action, dust and glamor of the bull fight to your wall.

This painting was fun to create, and I really enjoyed using texture which has been applied using a stencil and a piping bag. The stenciled pattern on the Matador’s livery is gilded using gold leaf. The Bull's horns were textured by using a piping bag. Inks were poured onto the body of the bull and allowed to flow around until they dried in wonderful shades of dark and light purples creating a deep vibrant hide.

This painting measures 91 x 76 cm and is painted on an unframed quality deep edged stretched canvas ready to hang.

Please read my poem to learn more about the controversial sport of Bullfighting. Poem coming soon.

Original Artwork Creation Process

Many hours go into creating an original painting.

  • The canvas is stretched
  • Canvas is primed
  • Design is created from photos which have been taken.
  • Plan is developed so that there is a logical step by step from background painting to finished painting.
  • Design is sketched onto the canvas before painting and the application of texture paste using stencils and/or palette knives is performed.
  • Many layers of painting plus a final coat protective varnish are all done with love and care.

This is why original paintings are valuable investments plus the fact that there is only one unique original. However once the original is sold you may buy high quality archival beautiful Fine Art Reproductions.


All artworks, both Originals and Fine Art Reproductions, are carefully wrapped in customized packaging to ensure protection during shipping.


Original painting will be packaged within 2 to 3 business days. Once your parcel is with Australia Post please allow 3 - 6 business days for standard shipping (1 - 2 days for express) to all major Australian cities (slightly longer for rural areas). Total time from order placement to delivery to your door will be up to 14 business days.
All items are shipped by registered post with Australia Post which may be affected by COVID19, with slightly increased delivery times.
