|Unfinished (Feeding the Cows Watercolor 8" x 10")|
Feeding the Cows is a small watercolor. It is a painting of my son and his son sitting on top of a round hay bale with a cow below them eating the hay. My grandson was not to sure about the situation and was a little scared. I can remember being scared of cows myself when I was young. If I were ever to touch a cow or even a calf I had to be held by one of my parents. If they were not holding me I kept my distance.
You can not see the face of the cow and I can not "make it up". I have seen cows all my life but while I am painting the face on a cow eating escapes me.
At some point I accidentally picked up a large amount of Ultramarine blue while working on my son's face and before I noticed the blue it was right in the middle of his face.
Then I wet it and wiped it and got most of it off but lost a little of the detail in his face.
So despite the challenges I have had today I got most of a painting done.
I am still working on it.
