Day 187

It's been a while since I've painted a cow. Cattle are always fun for me to paint - I just love their faces. This was painted from one of my many reference photos of cattle that I take whenever I'm driving around the back roads and happen to have my camera with me. I thought Ginger was a good name for her, with her pretty light red hide.

  1. Kat, I love the strong brushwork on this. It "makes" the cow. Your colors are also well chosen with the muted red/green contrast. Nicely done!
