Painting Cows in Meadow

Painting a White Cow in Meadow.

This white one was just waiting to get painted.

Slight overcast day, yet the white of the cow is always bright(est). Below the pics of the scene and palette used.

The real interesting part about painting this one was painting the difference between the short meadow grass and the long grass by the water. There's an abundance in greens and one can easily be 'lured into failure' painting these two areas separate.

Here it's woven into each other, where the separation is made between the (reflected light in the) water and the land.

➜TIP: Keep a harmonious looseness in your painting:  Where 2 areas 'meet': weave the paint into each other, instead of using 'clear borders', clear endings or clear lines which can break up the one-ness in 'the looseness'.
