like how the green complex moves through the space
how the dark emerges from green
and cows from the dark

In general I really don’t like black at all, it gives the subject a very ‘dead’ tone. Instead of normal black I would rather use a more ‘alive’ black by mixing Burnt umber with French ultramarine. (I’m sure you got more or less the same effect with Prussian & Burnt Umber)
I really enjoy the way you did the clouds, also the leaves in the tree, there is really a crispness to them – perhaps a little more of that crisp/sharpness to the grass? (It might very well be only the image that looks a little vague at the bottom :) )

Hey, we must be in a cow mood! I painted one last night.
I like this.

I like how the tall grass colors
(through the lights and darks)
play into the next group of grasses
gives a nice feel of depth and fullness
the skycolors play well with the tree
within the composition
wonderful variance in the greens
great full tree too
(agree with wayne about the kiss of light on the far cow...
a small, subtle kiss...not too bright)
restful and poetic
