Re: "Hello Bobby"

Aw such a cute little guy! His expression comes right out of your painting. And thanks for posting your wip. As I'm pretty new to all this I really appreciated seeing how you've done this. That is an awesome painting!

Re: "Hello Bobby"

Kathie,

Great job on this one! I too love the grass and the WIP (I've a got a painting that needs grass and I'm stuck. This helps.) It has a very warm quality to it. Well done!

I live next to a 40 acre cow pasture here in Central Florida. I've taken a few pictures of the cows (including the calves). If you want I can send you some reference photos I've taken. You're free to paint them if you want.
