10″x8″ oil on panel

I have never painted cows before today, I decided “cow” intimidated me. So I painted shapes of light and dark in shadow and light. I carved legs out by painting grass around them. And in the end, I had something that, at least in context, reads as cow.

I have an oil painting class coming up where I am going to break down how to mix color, paint clouds, fields and flowers, and also horses and cows. You can learn more or sign up Here.

  1. WOW!
    Years ago, Taos painter Walt Gonske went crazy and went crazy impressionist. I say crazy, but some of it I liked a lot. Lots of knife work. He’s returned now to more settled ways, though I don’t think as good as he was before his venture into impressionism. These cows remind me of some of his “crazy” work, and I like them very much. Try some knife, and also clouds here can be Colorado mountains. You’re amazing, Juliana!
