Holstein in the Pasture

Holstein in the Pasture
Oil on canvas, 8x6
There is something so peaceful about painting a pastoral.  It takes me right back to the carefree days of childhood, picking little white clover flowers and tying them together into necklaces - while watching the cows on the other side of the fence.  I'm creating a tranquil mood here by calming down the colors and adding some carefree strokes.  This is also a good study for me on the anatomy of a cow, I don't think I've ever drawn a whole cow before!  Painting number 386 in as many days and day 21 of the 30 day painting challenge.
