Sweet Little Yellow Heifer - Cow Painting
This sweet little heifer is part of a cow art show exhibition that will be on display in 2015. Her sweet face is what attracted me most to doing her. Those big doe eyes and adorable pink nose. I mean who can resist a face like that. "Daisy" is a name I gave her while my other cow painting titled "Isabell" was the actual name of the cow.
Those familiar with my work know that I love the whimsy of bright colors and while usually I don't "try" to make the art deliberately vibrant, it often just happens almost organically. Generally I do know going in that I want a certain "feel." Meaning I decide ahead of time whether I want the cow painting to be realistic in color and details or more looser and representational with a fun attitude, which usually happens to work itself out in a vibrant color palette.
Most of the cow paintings that are to be a part of this cow art show will be representation yet vibrant and whimsical, though some will lean more toward realism in both color and technique.
The original cow painting is a mixed water media piece that includes, watercolor pencil, water soluble inks and lastly water soluble wax pastels and is done on museum grade suede board.
