Cows Under Trees

Trees, See-Throughs.

We went chasing cows closer to home and found this spot.

Having fun again with trees, overhanging the scene. Nice to create the 'see-throughs' I favour a lot. 

I could have used more cows near, but yes, I think one must not get carried away in painting the scenery, trees, grasses, shadows and forget to pay attention to the 'backbone' of the painting: cows. At the end one loses their boldness placing them. So the cow composition could have been better if I had started with them perhaps.

That's the reason to go back to similar spots. And taking different 'routes', experimenting with different 'starts', composition, view-points, different color combinations, etc.
