Oh wow ......... Kathie, you are turning into master of bovine art :clap: :clap: :clap:
I am absolutely adoring those lovely rich colours in this one :heart: :thumbsup: :clap:
May I ask what colours you used here and if you use water or medium to dilute them ?

You have a wonderful series going with your little cow friends and they are delightful. Very nice and like the wip shown here. I know you will never run out of good ideas for this series Kathy, keep at it.
Wonderful addition to your series.

Kathrin, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! You really made my day! I'm glad you like this little one.:smug:
The colors I used were, paynes gray, cerulean blue, tit white, burnt umber,naples yellow,raw sienna, hookers green and ivory black. I only thin with water.. these Liquitex Heavy body paints are rich in pigment and are great when thinned to Inky consistancy! I LOVE THEM!:D
Thank you very much Elinor, Shrl and Arlene! I really appreciate the comments!!:heart:
