Day 150

Goat Itch, 6 x 6 inch oil on panel
© 2012 Kathleen Coy

Remember when I did the value study for this painting a few weeks ago? It made it a lot easier when it came time to paint this guy in color. I had quite a bit of fun with this one, pushing the reflected colors on his fur and adding thick areas of paint with the palette knife in the sunlit straw.

I'm going to take tomorrow off for the holiday. I'll be back Friday. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!


  1. I love the sunlight that you captured in this painting, Kathleen! And the texture of the sunlit straw is pure genius. Beautiful painting!

    Congratulations on the 6" Squared show! Well done!
