#105/365 Painting

Baby cow gazing out at the big old world. Hungry, curious and mom focused. I love baby cows.

Project notes: This baby cow painting is sourced from a black and white photograph taken at Point Reyes Ca some years back. I took about 170 cow photos that day. Very satisfying to paint some of them now. And to return to the 20 minute watercolor painting approach that was alive and well in January.
