SOLD (8x8in on canvas panel)
Someone had mentioned that they’re watching to see if I ever paint cows, and that got me thinking. It took a few searches to find a face I liked in a pleasing composition, but alas! Here is my go at a cow face. I tend to emphasize all the colors; it would be a fun experiment to paint the same picture muted and then again extremely enhanced with color! Phooey, I should have done that today. ::sigh::
Here is a half way through shot:
I start with the darkest, to kind of map out the painting. Then I really try to remember to squint and see the different values in the mid tones.
