Daisy Cow

I decided to try something different. I just love cows. They just have the sweetest face although I am not really sure if they are really sweet or not. Anyway, I went on Wet Canvas to find a reference photo. There are lots of images there. One of my goals is to gather some photos that I have taken that I can use for painting. I am very photography challenged. I can never tell if what I am seeing is a good shot or not so therefore I don't take it. I probably should take a photography course. That's on my bucket list---along with going to Tuscany to paint.


Below is the reference photo. Just love that face.

....oooohhh, I love cows, too! This one is great. I have a series of folk art plates hanging on a wall that I affectionately call "Cows of our Planet."

Just want to put a bug in your ear...I do hope you will teach a class using this painting technique!

You did a wonderful job of catching his personality through his face Martha. My 3 yr old grandson just adores cows and he lives in the city. I think he must love their sweet looking faces also.
So is this an oil painting or acrylic? I've not tried oils at all yet..but maybe someday.
