Farm Landscape Hereford Cows

6x6 inch oil on panel

Hereford Cattle. Summer landscape.  6x6 inch oil on panel.  My favorite part is keeping the shapes of the cows as simple as possible. Just a suggestion with the palette knife. I love how the sun lands on their many planes and affects the color of their hide.

Plein Air Paint Out Sunset Kekionga


What a fun night!  I plein air painted with many artists at the Kekionga Plein Air Paint Out.  This is on the Historic Landing, Columbia Street.  Downtown Fort Wayne.

This is 1 of 2 I completed this evening. 

I forgot my umbrella 🙃  I think I burned my eyes facing the sun, but the back lighting was beautiful.

This painting was sold at the end of the week during the final day of painting.
