Cow Study

This was done a while back but one of my favorite studies. These guys sat for hours, I was actually able to do this on location. The best models...this is a 6X12 on stetched canvas.

Painting from Yellowstone

This is an older painting I did from Yellowstone. I don't do alot of large paintings...this is a 28X40...I've attempted this painting so many times I've lost count. Thinking about trying this in a smaller format...I tend to tighten up with larger pieces and lose the freshness that I shoot for. Might make another attempt but much smaller....jury is still out on this one!

This is a painting I've done before but I think it's okay to paint things over and over...for me with the hopes of improving on the subject. Red is such a challenge for me to get the light without getting chalky, haven't quite got it figured yet. This was painted on a 11X14 gessoed board.

"Moose Falls"

Shame on me...didn't take advantage of the beautiful day we had today to paint out but did this from a photo I took a few years back. I apologize for the awful photograph, the painting is not this warm (took on alot of orange, poor lighting) I might have to repost this tomorrow, and once I sleep on it may go back in and make some changes. Obviously not a rock painter, but set up this as a challenge so.....didn't really succeed but thought I'd share my attempt anyway.
