Calf in the Morning Light
Oil on linen on panel, 10 x 8 inches, SOLD
This is the piece I painted as a demo during the Celebration of Western and Wildlife Art Show and Auction in Puyallup, WA, during the first weekend of this month. I painted from a photo I took in Bishop, CA last fall. I painted the same calf in a different photo during the quick draw at Ellensburg National Art Show in May. She is my favorite model. I love the nice contrast of light and dark, as well as the contrast of yellow and purple in this scene. I did painted the first layer with brushes, then I painted over some areas with a small palette knife to add more paint and interesting texture.
