Cows–full painting

20140203-230904.jpg

I started this one last week but didn’t get far enough to post it. In the middle I decided once again to drop two colors from my palette–raw sienna and burnt sienna. Too muted, at least the Maimeri. I will try relying more on my permanent alizarin crimson and azo yellow which I can adjust as needed.

Not so sure how I feel about this one. I need to think about it more. Unrelated to this I need to spend some time practicing drawing people. I want to incorporate more people into my paintings, and people aren’t as easy to fake as elephant seals and cows.

Thanks for reading.

    I love the variety in your work, Corey, and that you can find something to sketch any place you go…the utility pole on the wayside, the cows in the meadows, the harrowing road by Big Sur. You find beauty in your surroundings even when it’s just office windows during your lunch hour. You’re getting better every day. I love to watch your progress.

      Thanks very much! Glad the road near big sur came off as harrowing. That part of California is so rough and beautiful I want to make sure some of my paintings in the series have a real sense of unease about the beauty. Happy to hear it worked there.

    I have yet to try a herd of cows in the pasture, though they always hold my attention while driving country roads. You’ve convinced me with this one that it is time for me to give it a try. Thanks!
