I've been switching gears from several large works, Here are some of the latest, a selection of Holstein cow paintings.
Holstein Cow original oil "Sunny" 12"x12"
I loved her curiosity and the black top knot.
Holstein Cow Oil Study 8"x8"
Inquisitive girl, with great eyelashes.
Holstein Calf w/Red oil painting study 8"x8"
This little calf had a cute face, and needed to be painted.
Last but certainly not least, I loved the expression, angle and colors in this Holstein calf:
Holstein Calf "On the Ranch" oil painting study 8"x8"
This study is certainly going to end up as a large piece. They may all, but I am sure about this one. That is the purpose of a small study after all, to see the colors and composition in smaller form, before committing to a very large painting.
