Day 13 - Cows in Color


8x10
Oil on Linen on Panel


Cows are interesting animals.  I had my own close encounter drawing some back in Sweden years ago.  I was sitting on a rock as they closely moved in to take a closer look at me.  They are curious and followers, which I experienced when I got a little nervous, turned and started running...only to have the whole flock start running after me...:-)  I try not to do that anymore...

With this painting I wanted to keep the brush strokes simple and get those beautiful warm and cool "whites".  I had a good time with it and only did some of the grass, may just leave it that way.
