Re: The start of Cow Season.

Matc,
A very strong painting, I believe. A especially appreciate your strong, pure colors. Great darks and even they seem clear, transparent, not muddy at all.
Bold colors are making a statement - about paint - about painting atself - about your experience of the word around you.
I looked at your website and you have a lot of wonderful painting shown there. Also, your willingness to share your experiences is appreciated.
Thanks for sharing...
Steve

Re: The start of Cow Season.

Very nice, I love the crisp contre jour and the tone of the distant trees. The grey wedge in the foreground might need knocking back.

Re: The start of Cow Season.

Surprisingly difficult things to paint, cows. Have even seen them look like dogs in the past. But you'll have no problems. You do the best rendering of buildings Ive seen
