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 ?

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:

I love this little guy! Calves are sooo fun to watch and full of character... this captures that wonderful moment where he is still and wanting to catch a nap!
