|9 x 12 oil on panel|
Yesterday two other artists and I went to an historic ranch called Silver Saddle Ranch outside of Carson City, NV. It was a charming old ranch with cattle in different fields. Some had given birth to calves already.
I worked with my new oil set up (oops - I forgot to post pictures of it) and it was much better than the French Easel. You can see a little of my set up below:
I worked longer in the field - maybe 2 or 2-1/2 hours. It was hard! The cattle keep moving! So I finished it today at home. The only problem is...I think my cattle look like pot-bellied pigs! (Kinda small). The cattle in the background were real hard - they are just blobs, but they have to LOOK like cattle blobs! Oh well....it was fun to try! And I enjoy a good challenge.
