Fran Bull is best known for wildlife and other water-reflected images such as boats sailing down a river, sculpture reflected in a pond and buildings mirrored in lakes. Each of her paintings contain subtle tonal changes remarkably sensitive to the light source, usually the sun, and each image also involves the monumentous task of having to create perspective in a moving flow of water.

Like many other Photorealist artists, Bull begins with photographic images as the source of her inspiration.

“I look for qualities in a photograph, which will give rise to any number of painting possibilities. A transformation occurs in the process of focusing on the parts of a photographic image, and then. by means of art, representing these parts. In general Photo-Realism, and particularly what I do, deals intimately with building a whole from intensely realized parts.”
