Pig and Cow Painting

 "Got Milk" 8x10  Oil

"Piglet" 6x6  Oil

These two small paintings are good examples of the "light rule". Got Milk has warm light and cool shadows and Piglet is the reverse, cool light and warm shadows.  

While driving nears High River, Alberta we came across the amazing cow with her beautiful markings.  In hindsight I wish I would have taken many more photos of her.  The little piglet was photographed while at Butterfield Acres this past summer.

Charming blog, you seem to have managed to keep this fresh spirit about you that stays alive in your finished piece. Nicely done all the way around.
