Painted these two on a 6 x 8" cradled panel. So slick that I felt like I was pushing paint around a lot. Had to really load my brush up and use a light touch. Still prefer more texture on a painting surface.
I have a distant relative in east Tennessee who has a dairy. I love the colors and markings on the holsteins. Think this is the first time I have painted one. Won't be the last.sold
You have captured an expression on the cows faces that is adorable...I love the title too!ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous, graphic painting! This painting maybe suggests that you'd like to paint MORE on that slick surface.... ?ReplyDelete
What a fun painting . . . and your title cracks me up! Slick surface or not, you did well.ReplyDelete
Those cows definitely look interested in whatever you were doing. I think you captured their personalities! I especially love that black and white cow!ReplyDelete
Elle feraient fureur au salon de l'agriculture en ce moment à Paris...ReplyDelete
J'aime les vaches... et les vôtres sont particulièrement belles avec l'expression singulière qu'elles ont.
Carol, I like this one! Both cows are wonderful. Love the expression on his face. Wonderful painting and you mastered the surface well.ReplyDelete
I love this one, Carol. Years ago I had a friend whose family had a dairy farm. I loved going to visit and believe I am a secret farm girl at heart. Too, I love the high meadow grasses, so perfect for this munching duo.ReplyDelete
Carol, moo'cho wonderful painting! I like the way you captured the shady spot where they are standing. The bold colors on the cows with the loose brush work on the grass is striking! I prefer texture for my painting surface. I did, however, just receive a new order of Richeson Gessobords from Judson's and they are really different. Not slick like Ampersand. I can handle these ok, but I much prefer linen!!!!ReplyDelete
The cows have a wonderful expression. I know what you mean about a slick surface to paint on and having to load the brush. Its different--have to hold the brush more parallel to the panel to get the paint to stay on!ReplyDelete
I love cows, they will be one of my futur painting subject. You're are just "magnifiques" !ReplyDelete
