Late Summer Cows
I'm a little behind the seasons with my paintings. This one looks spring-y, but its actually from a picture I took in late summer. But clearly I need to do some fall paintings. The only problem is that I've done a horrible job of taking good fall pictures. If you have any pretty fall pictures, send them my way!
I also tried not to get too stuck in being super-realistic with this one. Some of my favorite paintings are the most stylized ones, but sometimes I get in a rut with copying photographs too closely. It helped that the photo I used for most of this painting was really bad and washed out and didn't show the sky at all, so I was forced to be a bit more creative.
