A friend wanted me to paint his girlfriends cow that passed away. I'm not the best a painting cows so I put it in a landscape. I hope they like it.
Happy Painting

Penny,

Wonderful job on this.  Big tree looks great.  The white cloud running behind the branches is an eye catcher.  Maybe some blue color mixed in there will make it less noticeable.

The fence posts look so real - maybe should be smaller as they recede behind the tree.

The colors are so restful.

 :heeha: This is great Penny! You've done a fabulous job on this. Very nice light play on the field. Look for anywhere you can darken shadowed areas and have an eye for any cast shadows.

I think they will really enjoy this, I know I would.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val
