Animal Studies

Had a chance to do some sketching at a large ranch I had visited last fall. The long horn cattle were striking! Unfortunately Saturday, they were quite shy. I would walk close enough to see them, and they would move over the hill… and believe me, they have lots of room to roam.

The draft mules, on the other hand, were most friendly. More to come from these studies. Several will make nice paintings I think. These small quick gouache studies are such a good way for me to work out problems.

Thank you Sue for the opportunity.
