Evening Light Cow

Evening Light Cow 11x14" oil on canvas $199

I've been in the studio, the last couple of days painting sketches from my inventory of photos. This is one of the 4 cows next door, photographed in the late evening. I shot this photo in early November. I liked how he looked kind of angry, even though it was a beautiful afternoon. I got the color harmonies from another painting, that I did under similar light this summer. I have a studio full of sketches painted en plein air, and it's good to give them new life by "borrowing" their colors.

I'd like to say thanks to everyone who has purchased work off of my blog during the 30 in 30 challenge. I am going to keep posting regularly after the challenge. Before the challenge, I would normally just paint, and let them dry in my upstairs studio, but now it's fun to photograph them and get them up right away.
