|Having a Snack, 12" x 12", oil on canvas|
Yesterday's marketing challenge was to post pictures of a painting in progress. I have done this before and it is fun to see the progression. I had started this painting the day before, so I had already done the drawing and started blocking things in. This painting is of a young long horn cow (from one of the photos I took at a long horn cattle farm near my house). He is having a snack, as you can see the grass hanging out of his mouth. I have to say the most challenging part of this painting was his tongue! (Not quite sure why...) In fact when I first saw the picture, I didn't realize his tongue was sticking out. When I noticed it, that is what cinched it for me. I had to paint it! (artists are weird that way...) So here are pictures of the progression of this painting. Enjoy!
