It's been awhile since I've done any cows, so it took me a bit to get going. I started this one at a demo I did last night. I was a little nervous but it was a fun experience. I still need to do some tweeking but I'll live with it for a bit and see what I need to fix.
This cold virus has gotten the better of me and I just haven't been feeling like painting. Hopefully I'll feel better soon 'cause I have a lot of work to do. My gallery wants more cows ( I hope I don't become known as the cow lady, lol). I also have to prepare for a workshop I'm giving on my textures. I will be posting soon.
Maybe if I keep painting enough of these I might get it right. Practice makes perfect. I know the feeling I want to achieve...just gotta do it. I want to go out and take more pics but the weather is not cooperating and there is too much snow. So...this one is kinda made up.
This tiny little painting caused me nothing but grief! I should have finished it in one short session instead it took me hours and hours...longer than all my larger paintings. I'm posting it but I'll probally end up changing it again. Either that or I'll just throw it away. Something is wrong and I can't quite put my finger on it. I'm going to a Jean Geddes workshop on critiquing your art this weekend. I'll definately bring this one.

For for a change of scenery...Calgary Foothills with our backs to the mountains. Not sure what the name of this road is but it's off of 22x around Priddis. I wanted to see what my textures would look like with a more flat landscape.I still used my palette knife but also used some dry brushing as well.
