Young Heifer

6 x 6 inches, Oil on Gessoboard

$ 95. For Purchase

The inspiration for this painting comes from the Daily Paintwork's cow challenge.  I went to Morgue File and got a wonderful photo reference to work from.   I hoped to capture the heifer's muscles and still keep the brushwork fluid.  But this painting needed more, it needed richer browns than I could mix with my favorite tube brown.   So I mixed my own from a red, blue and yellow.    


  1. Fabulous...fabulous...fabulous. And I have never wanted to paint a cow but this is special.,

    1. Thank you Julie. It is always a boost to get a compliment from a fellow artist.
