Brown's Pasture

My apologies for the glare. The oil paint is still very wet. I hope to take another photo this afternoon as there have been a few changes to ground around the foreground cow. The darks look really black but in real life there are hints of red, green, blues, purple in the bushes and trees. If you are wondering about the white speck that really is a cow and it isn't white but naples yellow.

The painting is 20" x 16, oil on stretched canvas. The painting is of the cows in Brown's pasture which is just down the highway from me. I painted this from one of my own photos. Below is a composite of the steps I took to get to this painting.
