I’ve been too busy with the farm to paint. Not painting has been not good for my spirit. But today, I had a chance to work on these two.
I need to finish the longhorns before I tackle the grassy foreground which will partially obliterate them. I want the paint on the cattle dry before I get a little sloppy painting the golden grasses. I may need to wait a couple of days, before I finish it.
The rooster has some nice qualities but I’m not sure the drawing works for me. When I originally drew him, he moved before I finished. I had to make up his bottom half. I may need to go back and try again. I do like the abstracted hens in the “coop” in the background.
